Mamet’s The Cryptogram Begins London Previews Oct. 12

News   Mamet’s The Cryptogram Begins London Previews Oct. 12 The Donmar Warehouse revival of David Mamet’s The Cryptogram, starring Kim Cattrall, begins previews Oct. 12, officially opening on Oct. 17.

"Sex in the City" star Cattrall made her West End debut in January 2005 with a Peter Hall-directed revival of Brian Clark’s Whose Life Is it Anyway.

The Cryptogram is directed by Josie Rourke (World Music at the Donmar) and co-stars Douglas Henshall.

The play charts the breakdown of a family, identifying the moment when childhood vanishes. It was first seen in London in 1994 with Eddie Izzard and Lindsay Duncan.

A founding member of the Atlantic Theater Company, Mamet’s principle works include The Duck Variations, Sexual Perversity in Chicago, American Buffalo, Glengarry Glen Ross (for which he won a Pulitzer Prize), Boston Marriage, Edmond, Oleanna and Speed-the-Plow. The Cryptogram won the Obie Award for Drama when it was first performed in 1995.

Henshall’s stage credits include Death of a Salesman. The cast also features Joe Asman, Adam J. Brown and Oliver Coopersmith. The production is designed by Peter McKintosh (Boston Marriage, Frost/Nixon).
