It will open at the Vaudeville Theatre on May 13 (following previews from April 29), and will run to July 19.

Most recently revived in the West End when Penelope Wilton starred in a production that originated at North London's Almeida Theatre and transferred to the Apollo Theatre in 1993, Scacchi inherits the role of Hester Collyer, the daughter of a clergyman and wife of a celebrated judge. She's floundering in the final stages of a hopeless affair with a younger, alcoholic former fighter pilot. He becomes overwhelmed by the strength of an emotion that he is incapable of reciprocating.

Scacchi won an Emmy Award for her work n "Rasputin: Dark Servant of Destiny" in 1996.

Director Edward Hall's production also features Dugald Bruce Lockhart as Freddie, Simon Williams as Hester's cuckolded judge husband, and Tim McMullan as a fellow lodger in the boarding house where Hester and Freddie are staying.
