News   Pete Postlethwaite Heads for London Stage

Pete Postlethwaite, best known these days as a movie star, will be back on a London stage for the first time in ten years, when he appears in his one-man show Scaramouche Jones at the fringe Riverside Studios. The production will play for four weeks, from Sept. 25 to Oct. 19.

Postlethwaite was seen onstage in Manchester earlier this year, when he appeared in Harold Pinter's classic The Homecoming, and has been touring Scaramouche Jones around the U.K.

The actor, who received an Oscar nomination for his role in "In the Name of the Father," and also co-starred in "The Usual Suspects" and "Brassed Off," was last seen on the London stage starring opposite Alison Steadman and Jane Horrocks in The Rise and Fall of Little Voice at the Aldwych, in 1992.
