David Tennant (Good, Good Omens, Doctor Who) will star in a new staging of Macbeth at the Donmar Warehouse this winter.
The central London venue’s season is also set feature the European premiere of Clyde’s, Lynn Nottage’s follow-up to her Pulitzer-winning piece Sweat. The play is set in a Pennsylvania truck stop, where the formerly incarcerated staff aspire to create the perfect sandwich.
Running from 13 October to 2 December, Nottage’s play will be directed by Lynette Linton (who also directed Sweat at the venue in 2018), while the creative team also includes designer Frankie Bradshaw, lighting designer Oliver Fenwick, sound designer George Dennis, movement director Kane Husbands and composer Duramaney Kamara.
The venue’s associate director Max Webster (Life of Pi, Henry V) will then direct Tennant in the Scottish Play, with further casting for the show to be revealed in due course.
