News   Lindsay Joins Cast of London's Under the Blue Sky Nigel Lindsay has joined the previously announced Francesca Annis, Lisa Dillon, Chris O'Dowd, Dominic Rowan and Catherine Tate in the West End premiere of David Eldridge's Under the Blue Sky, which will officially open at the Duke of York's Theatre July 25 following previews that begin July 15.

David Eldridge's play revolves around three subtly connected love stories that, press notes state, "reveal in turn the roller-coaster ride of lust in its prime, the sacrifices of a life in public service and unrequited passions." Under the Blue Sky premiered at the Royal Court in 2000 staged by Rufus Norris. Now it will be directed by Anna Mackmin.

Lindsay recently played Lenny in Harold Pinter's The Homecoming and Moe Axelrod in Clifford Odets' Awake and Sing!, both directed by Michael Attenborough for the Almeida Theatre. His other theatre credits include Nathan Detroit in Guys and Dolls at the Piccadilly Theatre, The Woman Before and Push Up for the Royal Court, The Pillowman, Blue Remembered Hills and Dealers Choice for the National Theatre and The Real Thing for the Donmar Warehouse, which later transferred to the West End and Broadway. His television credits include "Jam and Jerusalem," "All About George," "New Tricks," "My Family," "Harbour Lights" and "Murphy's Law" and the 2008 BAFTA-nominated "Relief of Belsen" for Channel 4 in which he starred with Iain Glen and Jemma Redgrave. His film credits include "Scoop," "On a Clear Day," "Mike Bassett England Manager" and "Rogue Trader."
