Donmar Warehouse Artistic Director Michael Longhurst has announced that the final two shows in the theatre’s 2023 season will be Shakespeare’s Macbeth starring David Tennant and the European premiere of Lynn Nottage’s 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. The production opens on 19 October, with previews from 13 October and runs until 2 December.
The season concludes with William Shakespeare’s Macbeth starring David Tennant in the title role, directed by Donmar Associate Director Max Webster, which opens on 15 December, with previews from 8 December, and runs until 10 February 2024.
Michael Longhurst’s final season of shows before he steps down as Artistic Director next year will be announced in Autumn 2023.
Also announced today is the schools’ tour of William Shakespeare’s Henry V, directed by Donmar’s former Resident Assistant Director Dadiow Lin. Inspired by the critically acclaimed 2022 Donmar Warehouse production directed by Max Webster, and supported by headline partner Howdens and Westminster City Council, the production tours for four weeks in June and July, with performances offered free of charge reaching up to 3000 young people in Camden and Westminster.
