Rosamund Pike in Madame De Sade at Wyndham's
Rosamund Pike playing 'Renee' will join prevously mentioned Judi Dench, who plays 'Madame de Montreuil' in Madame de Sade, which opens at the Wyndham's Theatre 18 March 2009, following previews from 13 March - running to 23 May 2009.
Rosamund Pike's London stage credits include "Gaslight" at the Old Vic in 2007; "Summer and Smoke" at the Apollo in 2006 and "Hitchcock Blonde" at the Royal Court and Lyric Theatre in 2003. She is known internationally for her roles in films including Pride and Prejudice, The Libertine and the James Bond blockbuster Die Another Day.
Madame de Sade by Yukio Mishima, translated from the Japanese by Donald Keene, is directed by Michael Grandage, and produced by the Donmar Warehouse.
Against her mother’s wishes, Renee remains vehemently devoted to her husband, the Marquis de Sade, the notorious aristocrat imprisoned in the Bastille for his lurid escapades and licentious behaviour.
Set in Paris as it hurtles towards a violent revolution, Mishima’s poetic masterpiece brings to life the fascinating story of the Marquis de Sade told through the eyes of six remarkable women.
