Daniel Evans to direct Damian Lewis in American Buffalo at the Wyndham’s Theatre.
Homeland actor Damian Lewis is to return to the West End stage this Spring.
He will star in a new revival of David Mamet’s 1975 play American Buffalo, directed by Sheffield Theatres artistic director Daniel Evans.
Damian Lewis was last on the West End stage in 2009, playing alongside Keira Knightley in The Misanthrope.
Mamet’s blistering play is a morality tale about three small-time crooks on the eve of an attempted heist of precious coins.
Damian won a number of awards for his portrayal as Nicholas Brody in TV show Homeland and next month can be seen as Henry VIII opposite Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell in the BBC2 adaptation of Wolf Hall. His next project is US series Billions, a new Showtime thriller about a rich hedge fund manager.
Produced by Byam Shaw, American Buffalo will play the Wyndham’s Theatre from a limited season from 16 April to 27 June 2015.
