Just announced:

We launch Shakespeare's 400th anniversary year in London in 2016 with King and Country: Shakespeare's Great Cycle of Kings at the Barbican Centre

We continue our relationship with the Barbican by bringing together his greatest tetralogy of History plays in repertoire.

Gregory Doran's acclaimed productions of Richard II and Henry IV Parts I and II will play together for the first time, with his new production of Henry V, which premieres in Stratford-upon-Avon this autumn.

David Tennant returns in the title role of Richard II, Antony Sher and Jasper Britton play Falstaff and Henry IV respectively in the Henry IV plays, and Alex Hassell follows the journey of young Prince Hal to King Henry V.
