MODEL and actress Jerry Hall is set to reprise her role as seductress Mrs Robinson in a new stage show of ‘The Graduate’.

Hall stars in the stage adaptation of the Oscar winning movie, which originally starred the late Anne Bancroft in the lead role.

She first performed on the West End in 2000 and reprised around the world several times since.

She is now set to take to the stage in Melbourne as the show begins a limited run down under.

“It’s very tabo and it’s hard to find tabo things any more,” she told The Herald Sun about the show.

Australian actor Tim Dashwood will play the role of Benjamin, the graduate Hall’s character seduces.

“What’ll be fun for Tim (a Brisbane-based actor) and the other actors is to find out how funny the play is.

“It really delivers and the audience is wonderfully surprised at how well written, how funny and how many laughs there are.” She told the paper.
