Ralph Fiennes will return to the London stage next spring in the title roles of Shakespeare's "Richard II" and "Coriolanus." The Almeida Theater productions open April 12 and June 14, respectively, at Gainsborough Studios. A New York run may follow. The "English Patient" star, 36, won a Tony Award for best actor in the 1995 Broadway performance of "Hamlet." He'll soon also be seen in some new films, including an adaptation of Graham Greene's "The End of the Affair" as well as "Onegin," directed by his (and fellow actor Joseph Fiennes's) sister, Martha.
