The star of Fatal Attraction, Patriot Games and Short Cuts will be stepping into the shoes of another star of stage and screen for her debut at the world’s biggest arts festival.

Los Angeles-born Archer, 66, will play New Yorker Jane Fonda in the world premiere of a play which tackles her long-standing opposition to the Vietnam War and the ill-feeling her opposition to the conflict stirred up for years.
