Former Roseanne actress Laurie Metcalf is set to leave her marriage troubles behind and escape to London next spring (12) to star in a West End drama.
Actor Matt Roth, Metcalf's second husband of eight years, filed for divorce last week (ends23Sep11), but she is refusing to let her personal issues derail her career - the actress is returning to the London stage for a production of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night.
Previews for the drama are scheduled to begin on 2 April (12) at the Apollo Theater and the production will run until August (12), reports trade paper Daily Variety.
Metcalf last appeared in the West End in Arthur Miller's All My Sons in 2001.
