Oscar and Emmy winner Helen Hunt will return to the stage in the Old Vic Theatre's European premiere of Jonathan Spector's off-Broadway play Eureka Day, which runs September 6-October 31 at the south London venue.

The satire is set at a progressive day school in California circa 2017. When a mumps outbreak occurs, the school community turns on each other over questions of vaccination. Eureka Day had its New York premiere at Walkerspace in 2019, in a production by Colt Coeur.

Katy Rudd will direct the Old Vic production. Further information is still to be announced.
