Theatre fans can look forward to an exciting and challenging mix of classical, experimental and original theatre in the spring and summer season and also some major stars. Sir Ian McKellen comes to Stratford as part of an ensemble performing King Lear and Chekhov’s The Seagull, under the direction of the acclaimed Trevor Nunn. The two have a long relationship having worked together on Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and Othello, among others. McKellen, who has most recently appeared on the big screen in the Da Vinci Code and as Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings, will take the roles of Lear and Sorin; the latter being taken on a shared basis. Appearing as Goneril and Arkadina is Frances Barber. [More]
