London's Donmar Warehouse has announced complete programming for their 2023-2024 season. This year will mark current artistic director's Michael Longhurt's final season at the helm of the London theatre company, with Tim Sheader set to take over in March 2024.
The season will kick off February 16, 2024 with the world premiere of Lucy Kirkwood's The Human Body, which will run at the venue through April 13. Michael Longhurst and Ann Yee will direct the romantic drama starring Keeley Hawes and Jack Davenport. The work centers on a woman in 1948 England working in government who through a chance encounter becomes acquainted with a former-local-turned-Hollywood star.
Next will be Benedict Andrews' new version of Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, which will run April 26–June 22, 2024. Benedict Andrews will directed the work, which will star Nina Hoss and Adeel Akhtar as Liubov Ranevskaya and Ermolai Lopakhin, respectively.
Summer will bring the European premiere of Eboni Booth's Primary Trust, on the heels of its Off-Broadway run last summer. Matthew Xia will direct the play, which follows a man living an ordinary life in upstate New York, where his everyday life has remained the same for the past 15 years—but when the bookstore he's been working in closes, he's forced out of his comfort zone to face a world he has long avoided. The work will run June 28–August 24, 2024. Casting will be announced at a later date.
Additionally, the Donmar Warehouse production of Next to Normal will arrive on the West End June 18, 2024. Directed by Michael Longhurst, the critically-acclaimed production initially ran at Donmar Warehouse last summer, starring Caissie Levy. It now transfers to Wyndham's Theatre, where it's slated to run through September 2024, with casting to be announced.
