23 SEPTEMBER 2016 - 17 DECEMBER 2016
In 2012, Phyllida Lloyd’s all-female production of Julius Caesar placed the play in a women’s prison. It stunned audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and challenged the idea of ‘who owns Shakespeare?’ In 2014, Phyllida reunited with actor Harriet Walter for Henry IV, the second instalment in what was then announced as a trilogy of works from these major artists.
This autumn the project will conclude with The Tempest forming the final part of THE SHAKESPEARE TRILOGY, as we break free from the Donmar Warehouse to perform in a new 420-seat in-the-round temporary theatre at King’s Cross, immediately adjacent to King’s Cross station and directly accessible from King’s Boulevard.
The Tempest, Henry IV and Julius Caesar will play a 13-week repertory season, from 23 September - 17 December 2016. On special Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy days, all three plays will be performed back to back (dates to be announced).
With the Donmar’s education and outreach work in London and New York, both productions proved hugely popular with young audiences and shown how powerfully Shakespeare can develop individual confidence and creativity in those who have never experienced his work before.
