The new season at the Donmar Warehouse is open for booking today. Phyllida Lloyd will be directing an all-female cast of Julius Ceasar, Joe Wright will direct Trelawny of the Wells, a celebration of the enchantment of the Victoria Stage and Josie Rourke will direct the Weir in its first major British revival
From the Donmar ” Rose Trelawny is the brightest star in the firmament of the Wells, the theatre company that raised her from birth. But she’s prepared to give it all up for the love of her stage-door suitor, aristocratic Arthur. His family are less convinced of her charms, however, and her joyful challenge to their dreary, snobby existence shocks them to their core.
Trelawny of the Wells is Pinero’s love letter to the theatre. Joe Wright is one of our most exciting and visual film directors. This production is a celebration of the enchantment, the vivaciousness, the melodrama, the music and the irrepressible joy of the Victorian stage.”
