Clare Higgins, Nicola Walker, and Kate Ashfield will headline Thea Sharrock's new production of Nicholas Wright's biodrama Mrs. Klein at the Almeida Theatre, October 22-December 5. The production will be designed by Tony Award winner Tim Hatley, with lighting by Neil Austin and sound by Ian Dickson

The play, which debuted at London's National Theatre in 1988, focused on the relationship between the controversial psychoanalyst Melanie Klein and her daughter Melitta. Wright's many other works include Cressida and Vincent in Brixton, as well as his adaptations of Lulu, Naked, and His Dark Materials.

The Almeida season will also include James MacDonald's production of Judgment Day (September 3-October 17), Patrick Hamiltion's thriller Rope (October 22-December 5), and William Shakespeare's Measure for Measure (February 11-April 3).
