ObsessionRenowned director Ivo van Hove takes on Visconti's Obsession this spring, forming one part of a three production Toneelgroep Amsterdam residency at the Barbican. The month-long adaptation of the powerful 1943 social drama will be the headline event of the takeover and the first Toneelgroep show to star British actors, with Jude Law in the role of the magnetically handsome Gino. Based on James M Cain's novel The Postman Always Rings Twice, the story follows Gino as he encounters Giuseppe and his much younger, trapped wife, Giovanna. With Gino and Giovanna overwhelmingly attracted to one another, they begin an affair while also plotting to murder Giuseppe. However, in this story, passion can only lead to destruction.

Ugly or not, this multi-faceted performance and arts venue is truly wondrous. Open 363 days a year, it offers the most diverse program of any London venue. More about Barbican Centre
