Tracey Ullman to Star in Stephen Poliakoff's My City at the Almeida Theatre
The piece explores what happens when a man finds the woman who had been his primary school headmistress lying on a park bench near St. Paul's Cathedral. The production will have designs by Lez Brotherson lighting by Oliver Fenwick, and sound and music by Ben and Max Ringham. Additional casting will be announced in the near future.
Ullman is perhaps best known for her work on her eponymous FOX television series and such films as Woody Allen's Bullets Over Broadway and Small Time Crooks. Her stage credits include Rita, Sue and Bob Too at the Royal Court and The Taming of the Shrew for the Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park.
