Today’s Stage Sunday spotlights four plays that Helen did with the Royal Shakespeare Company between 1968 and 1970. Three years after Cleopatra, Helen played Shakespeare’s Cressida in Troilus and Cressida for the RSC, followed by Lady Anne in Richard III, Ophelia in Hamlet and Julia in The Two Gentlemen of Verona. The galleries have been updated with production stills, rehearsals pictures, backstage pictures and original posters. As I’m going to focus on Helen’s stage performances in the coming weeks, your help is appreciated. Have you collected pictures of Helen on stage, or theater programs, reviews, or even saw some of them? Please drop me a line to make the archive on Helen’s theatre career as comprehensive as possible.

Helen Mirren is in talks to co-star with Bryan Cranston in the biopic “Trumbo,” which is based on the life of blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. Jay Roach is attached to direct with Michael London producing through his Groundswell Productions banner, along with Janice Williams and John McNamara. Considered one of the great screenwriters of his time, Trumbo saw his career come to a halt when he was blacklisted after he refused to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in 1947 during the committee’s investigation of communist influences in the nation. He continued writing under pseudonyms and won two Academy Awards while blacklisted. He resumed his career under his own name after the blacklist effectively ended after 1960. His credits include “Roman Holiday” and “Spartacus.” No production date has been set and the film is still looking for a distributor.
