McKellen set for West End double as RSC plays transfer

Nuala Calvi

Royal Shakespeare Company productions of King Lear and The Seagull, starring Ian McKellen and Frances Barber, are to transfer to the West End later this year.

The two productions, directed by Trevor Nunn, are currently being performed at the Courtyard Theatre in Stratford upon Avon.

They will play in repertoire at the New London Theatre from November 12 for a limited run, featuring the original casts.

Prior to the West End transfer, the shows will visit Newcastle-upon-Tyne and tour to Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and the US.
