London: 'X Men' star James McAvoy is returning to Trafalgar Transformed for his next stage project, The Ruling Class.
The 35-year-old actor will play an English Earl who acts as if he's a Lord in the Jamie Lloyd adaptation of Peter Barnes's play, reported Digital Spy.
McAvoy took part in the first season of Trafalgar Transformed last year for the Macbeth production, which was also directed by Lloyd.
"There's something I like about making something where people come out shaking their heads, in either a positive or a negative way. Something dangerous," McAvoy said.
"It's about people at the top, thinking they're God, and thinking that their power isn't in any way limited... It's metaphysical, social and political satire - in short, a shock-fest."
