Ralph Fiennes, who was recently a great success as a celebrity guest in The Play What I Wrote at Wyndham's Theatre in the West End, is to tread the boards again later this year, at the Royal National Theatre.
Although the National cannot confirm dates and details yet, he will star in Christopher Hampton's new drama, The Talking Cure, in which he will play Carl Jung, the famed psychotherapist.
The Talking Cure will be directed by Howard Davies, whose production of Private Lives is heading for New York after an award-winning run at the Albery.
Fiennes has typically graced the stage in works by The Bard, including Hamlet, which won him a Tony Award when it came to Broadway. The Brooklyn Academy of Music recently hosted his star turns in Coriolanus and Richard II.
