Wanamaker and Suchet Star in Howard Davies-Helmed ALL MY SONS in West End, Opens 5/27

Zoe Wanamaker and David Suchet will star in the Apollo Theatre's production of ALL MY SONS. The play, by Arthur Miller, will open on May 27th, 2010.  Previews begin on May 19. The production will be directed by multi-time Olivier award winner Howard Davies, who previously won the Olivier Award for Best Director the National's revival of ALL MY SONS in the West End in 2000. Wanamaker will play Kate Keller, while Suchet will play the husband, Joe Keller. Additional casting announcements are forthcoming.

ALL MY SONS, which played Broadway with Diane Weist, Katie Holmes, Patrick Wilson and John Lithgow in 2008, is the family tragedy about a man, Joe (Suchet), who hides his participation in the death of of several U.S. fighter pilots in order to maintain his family's honor, allowing his business partner to take all of the blame. His wife, Kate (Wanamaker), has concealed her knowledge of Joe's previous crimes, but things resurface when their son decides to marry the former fiancée of his lost brother. The show is believed to be inspired by a true World World Two tale in which a manufacturer knowingly allowed defective tank parts to be shipped out.

The production is produced by Kim Poster, Sonia Friedman and Eric Falkenstein.

Wanamaker has performed on and off Broadway. Her Broadway credits include the revival of Awake and Sing! (Bessie Berger), the revival of Electra (Electra), Loot (Fay), and Piaf (Toine). Wanamaker is a four-time Tony Award nominee. Wanamaker has performed on the West End in Battle Royal, The Crucible, Much Ado About Nothing, His Girl Friday, and The Rose Tattoo.

David Suchet performed the role of John in the play Oleanna at The Royal Court Theatre, London in 1993. It was directed by Harold Pinter and Lia Williams co-starred as Carol. He was also featured as Salieri from 1998 - 2000 in the Broadway production Amadeus. Suchet has been seen on the West End in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Oleanna and Man and Boy, and The Last Confession.

Howard Davies has worked extensively with the Bristol Old Vic and the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, and he has served as an associate director for both the Royal Shakespeare Company, where he directed Les liaisons dangereuses, Macbeth, and Troilus and Cressida, and the Royal National Theatre, where his projects included Hedda Gabler, The House of Bernarda Alba, Pygmalion, The Crucible, The Shaughraun, and Paul. At The Almeida Theatre he has directed Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and The Play About the Baby, and his opera credits include Idomeneo, The Italian Girl in Algiers, Eugene Onegin, and I due Foscari.

Davies' work in West End theatre has won him the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Director for The Iceman Cometh and All My Sons; the London Critics Circle Award for Best Director for Mourning Becomes Electra and The Iceman Cometh; and the Evening Standard Award for Best Director for All My Sons and Flight.

Davies made his Broadway debut with Piaf in 1981. Additional Broadway credits include Les liaisons dangereuses, the 1990 revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the 1993 revival of My Fair Lady, Translations, the 1999 revival of The Iceman Cometh, the 2002 revival of Private Lives, and the 2007 revival of A Moon for the Misbegotten. He has been nominated for the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Play three times but has not won, and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Director of a Play three times, winning for Les liaisons dangereuses.
