Washington: Cate Blanchett is all set to return to the London stage next January, starring opposite Stephen Dillane at the National Theatre.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Blanchett will be seen in the world premiere of Martin Crimp’s ‘When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other: Twelve Variations on Samuel Richardson’s Pamela’.

The drama revolves around five characters, which will be thrown into a dangerous game of sexual domination and resistance.

Further information on the production, including dates and additional casting, is expected in the fall.
The two-time Oscar winner previously appeared on the London stage in David Hare’s Plenty in 1999.

Her extensive theatre credits include numerous productions that originated at the Sydney Theatre Company both before and during her tenure there as co-artistic director.
