London's Almeida Theatre has announced confirmed dates for the upcoming Headlong coproduction of the world premiere of American Pyscho. The show is based on Brett Easton Ellis' novel of the same name. It has a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik. The production will run December 3-January 25 with a December 12 opening.

Also featured this coming season at the Almeida will be British actors Lesley Manville, Jack Lowden, and Will Keen, who will star in the Richard Eyre (Private Lives) adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts, running September 26-November 23, with an official opening on October 3. Eyre will also direct the production.

In Ghosts, Helene Alving is living in an emotional void after the death of her cruel but charming husband. She is now determined to escape the ghosts of her past by telling her son, Oswald, the truth about his father.

The Almeida Theatre is helmed by Artistic Director Michael Attenborough. The company produces a diverse range of British and international drama and aims to link the theater's work with our local community.
