Full cast announced for HENRY IV at the Donmar Warehouse



The complete cast is set for the previously announced all-female Henry IV at the Donmar Warehouse. The production, directed by Phyllida Lloyd, who returns to the Donmar after her 2012 all-female Julius Caesar, which later transfered to New York's St. Ann's Warehouse, will weave action from bothHenry IV Part I and Part II to create a single narrative. Shakespeare's history play will begin at the Donmar from October 3 through November 29, with opening night set for October 9. Following the run, the production will play for one week at Mulberry School for Girls in Tower Hamlets as part of its extensive educational outreach initiative.

Phyllida Lloyd to direct all-female production of HENRY IV at Donmar Warehouse


The Donmar Warehouse today announces its next season of work.

Premiered at the Donmar Warehouse in 2012, Phyllida Lloyd’s all-female production of Julius Caesar sparked fierce critical and public debate both in the UK and in New York where it transferred in 2013 for a sold out run at St Ann’s Warehouse. The Donmar is delighted to announce a second production in what will become an epic trilogy of shows all of which will challenge the notion of who owns Shakespeare. Once again her cast will feature Harriet Walter as King Henry, Jade Anouka as Hotspur and Clare Dunne as Hal. The cast will also include Ashley McGuire as Falstaff.  The production will develop and enhance what was begun with Julius Caesar in a series of Education and Outreach projects. The company will work extensively with twenty schools, run over 75 workshops as well as offering £5 tickets to over 500 young people. The Donmar and Clean Break Theatre Company will work together on a series of workshops around the production.
