Donmar Warehouse



Julius Caeser, Henry IV, The Tempest

23 September 2016 – 17 December 2016

‘One of the most important theatrical events of the past twenty years’

‘Exhilarating… celebrates the imaginative power of theatre and the women working within it’

Following Julius Caesar and Henry IV, The Tempest completes a trilogy of Shakespeare productions directed by Phyllida Lloyd, a translatlantic project that has challenged the idea of ‘who owns Shakespeare’?

Harriet Walter once again leads an all-female cast in the three productions set in a women’s prison.

The Tempest transfered to St. Ann’s Warehouse, Brooklyn in January 2017 – the same venue as the two previous Shakespeare Trilogy productions.

The three Shakespeare Trilogy plays were filmed at Donmar King’s Cross, in a co-production between the Donmar Warehouse and Illuminations. Julius Caesar was selected for the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2017 and nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature Film. It was also shown in cinemas across the UK on 12 July 2017.
