About As You Desire Me

It has now been confirmed that Hugh Whitemore's adaptation of Luigi Pirandello's 1936 play, As You Desire Me, a rarely performed tragedy, will open on October 27, 2005 (previews from October 21) at London's Playhouse Theatre.

Joining 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' star Kristin Scott Thomas in the cast will be Margaret Tyzack and Bob Hoskins. The popular British actress will appear as a Berlin nightclub singer with amnesia in As You Desire Me, by Italian dramatist, Luigi Pirandello.

Tyzack has enjoyed a long and distinguished career in theatre, with His Girl Friday (National Theatre) and Auntie and Me (West End) her most recent ventures.

Hoskins however, though rarely seen on stage, is highly regarded for his work in films such as The Long Good Friday, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and Hook.

The play centres on a woman, calling herself Zara, whose life is interrupted when a stranger arrives insisting her name is Maria and that her husband, who she does not remember, is looking for her.
