Greig joins cast of Hare’s new NT play

David Hare’s new play Gethsemane – dealing with party political fundraising – will see Tamsin Greig make her National Theatre debut.

The show is part of the NT’s autumn/winter season, which also features the London premiere of the critically lauded August: Osage County, which transfers from the US, a new work by Tom Stoppard and a new play by Samuel Adamson based upon Ibsen’s Little Eyolf.

Stoppard’s latest – Every Good Boy Deserves Favour – is written in collaboration with composer Andre Previn and will feature the Southbank Sinfonia, Britain’s young professional orchestra. The show will tell the story of a dissident who has been locked up in an asylum. It will be directed by Tom Morris and Punchdrunk’s Felix Barrett.

Meanwhile, Marianne Elliott will direct Mrs Affleck, Adamson’s new take on Little Eyolf. Claire Skinner will take the title role.

The season runs from November to February.
