Because of the injury, Dench will be out of the show for all performances this weekend, March 20-22. The Donmar production plays the West End's Wyndham's Theatre. According to a production spokesperson for the Donmar, "As Judi Dench was leaving the theatre last night she tripped at the stage door and fell. She was taken to A&E [a hospital Accident and Emergency Room] where she was diagnosed with a severely sprained ankle. Doctors have advised that she bring no weight to bear on her foot for the time being. As a consequence, Judi's role of Madame de Montreuil will be performed this weekend by her understudy Marjorie Hayward. The Donmar and Judi apologise for any upset or inconvenience this may cause, and wish to reassure those with tickets that it is her intention to return to the role next week."
