David Tennant To Star In Richard II For The RSC

David Tennant will return to the stage for the Royal Shakespeare Company later this year in the title role of  Richard II. The announcement was made today by the company’s new Artistic Director, Gregory Doran,  at a press conference held in London this morning. The revelation ends months of speculation following internet rumours and hints by David himself that he intended to return to the stage soon. As recently as last Saturday, David advised audience members at the Project MotorMouth fan convention to ‘stay tuned’ when questioned on the subject. This marks David’s first stage work since he played Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing for Sonia Friedman Productions in 2011.

The play will open at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon on 10th October 2013
and will run till November 16th. It will then transfer to the Barbican Theatre in London from December 9th 2013 - 25th January 2014. Gregory Doran will direct the production.

Public booking for the season opens on March 18th . Ticket prices and purchasing details will follow
