First announced back in July, David Morton’s play The Wider Earth about Charles Darwin will be settling in at the Natural History Museum at the beginning of next month in a brand new theatre space on site.

The Donmar will break out beyond its Covent Garden home, opening a new, in-the-round, 420-seat temporary theatre at King’s Cross in association with Theatre Tracks, immediately adjacent to King’s Cross station and directly accessible from King’s Boulevard. The Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy, directed by Phyllida Lloyd and starring Harriet Walter in an all-female company will play a 13-week repertory season, from 23 September to 17 December 2016, of three productions – revivals of the sell-out Julius Caesar and Henry IV and a new production of The Tempest, all set in a women’s prison. On special Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy days, all three plays will be performed back to back.
