David Tennant to star in Max Webster’s production of Macbeth

The final two shows of Michael Longhurst’s tenure as artistic director of The Donmar Warehouse have been announced.

Donmar Associate Director and Tony and Olivier Nominee Max Webster closes the theatre’s 30th birthday season with William Shakespeare’s MACBETH starring David Tennant in the title role for the first time in his illustrious stage career. A spellbinding story of love and murder, the renewing power of nature, and of the internal struggles of a damaged man as he tries to control his destiny. This bracingly fresh
production of the Scottish play places us inside the mind of Macbeth, asking are we ever
really responsible for our actions? The show opens on 15 December, with previews from 8 December, and runs until 10 February 2024.

Lynette Linton directs the European premiere of Clyde’s

The European première of CLYDE’S reunites double Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage and director Lynette Linton as a follow up to their Donmar smash hit SWEAT which transferred to the West End. In the bustling kitchen of a run-down Pennsylvania t犀利士 ruck stop, the formerly incarcerated staff have been given a second chance. Under the tyrannical eye of their boss Clyde, this unlikely team strives to create the perfect sandwich, as they dream of leaving their past mistakes behind for a better life. The production opens on 19 October, with previews from 13 October and runs until 2 December.

Max Webster is represented by Simon Blakey and Lynette Linton is represented by Emily Hickman at The Agency.
