A FAMOUS film star is coming to Worcestershire this month, in a new production that is hitting the stage in a worldwide premiere.

Ralph Fiennes, known for his roles in the Harry Potter series and Schindler's List, is starring and directing in an adaptation of T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets. The production will be coming to Malvern Theatres from July 19, which will be the play's debut performance worldwide.

The play will only be running for one week, with it's last production on July 24, before hitting the West End in November.

Four Quartets follows the theme of nature of time, faith, and the quest for spiritual enlightenment.

Mostly written during WWII when the closure of playhouses during the Blitz interrupted Eliot’s work in theatre, the four parts (Burnt Norton, East Coker, The Dry Salvages and Little Gidding) were the culminating achievement of Eliot’s Nobel Prize winning literary career.

Ralph Fiennes has starred in some of greatest films of our time, including The English Patient, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Constant Gardner, Skyfall, In Bruges and The Dig. He won a Tony Award for playing Hamlet and he has performed many of theatre’s most iconic roles, with recent credits including Antony and Cleopatra (National Theatre), Richard III (Almeida) and The Master Builder (Old Vic).

He is joined by a remarkable creative team including Hildegard Bechtler (Designer) who won an Olivier Award for After the Dance at the National Theatre; Tim Lutkin (Lighting), winner of an Olivier Award for Chimerica and Christopher Shutt (Sound), winner of a Tony Award for War Horse.
