Rourke, who has worked across the West End, Broadway, Off-Broadway, and the silver screen, leads a creative team that features design by Rob Jones, lighting by Howard Harrison, sound by John Leonard, and music by Michael Bruce. The production reunites Rourke and Enoch: Enoch played Titus Lartius in Coriolanus at the Donmar Warehouse in 2013-14 under Rourke's direction.

The theatre's inaugural production, a transfer of New Vic Theatre's Marvellous, began previews October 15.
