Imperium comes to the West End, and Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and The Merry Wives of Windsor transfer to the Barbican.
After a sold-out run in the Swan Theatre this winter, Imperium I: Conspirator and II: Dictator will play at the Gielgud Theatre in the West End from 14 June.
Imperium is based on Robert Harris's best-selling Cicero trilogy, telling the story of the famous orator as he tries to protect the Roman Republic from his ambitious rival, Julius Caesar. Presented with Playful Productions, many of the cast and creatives from the original Stratford show will return for the London run, including Richard McCabe as Marcus Tullius Cicero and Joseph Kloska as Tiro.
Our upcoming productions of Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and The Merry Wives of Windsor will all play in the Barbican from 15 October 2018 to 19 January 2019.
London audiences will be able to see Christopher Eccleston as Macbeth and Niamh Cusack as Lady Macbeth, David Troughton taking the role of Falstaff in a contemporary retelling of The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Erica Whyman's Romeo and Juliet with Bally Gill and Karen Fishwick as the star-crossed lovers.
Over 30,000 tickets for £10 and under will be made available for our London productions, with the first tickets going on sale for priority booking from Monday 19 March.
