Still no news, but a good scout around the Hampstead Theatre website has come up with a few things:

Di and Viv and Rose will be in the Main House in January

Longing, directed by Nina Raine (not sure if she has written this too) will play the Main House in March (curently unreserved seating, so an unconventional layout).

So, Di and Viv and Rose transfers upstairs, plus Longing by William Boyd, based on Chekhov stories directed by Nina Raine

Good cast for Di ... : Anna Maxwell Martin, Gina McKee and Tamzin Outhwaite.

Think I'll be passing on both these

Booked Di and Viv and Rose, like the look of Longing but will probably wait a bit until nearer the time to help the credit card!

Do we need Chekhov short stories to be adapted for the stage?  Do we need Henry James' The Turn of the Screw adapted for the stage (Almeida next year), especially as it's a great opera and (apparently) film already?  We certainly don't need an adaptation for the stage of Pride and Prejudice (Open Air Theatre next summer) - the ne plus ultra of pointless adaptions, surely?

OK, once in a blue moon it works (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Nicholas Nickleby), but is anyone excited by the prospect of P and P on stage?

Quite excited by the idea of the Chekhov stories. The others..no. Pride and prejudice should be left as that magnificent TV series that cannot possibly be bettered...sorry Keira Knightley.

Agreed. Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth are all there is or ever need be!

Off-topic, but it depends on your age:  Timothy Dalton was the definitive male incumbent for me!

Forgive me, Madam, but I cannot help but feel that you are badly mistaken!  I take no leave of you, I send no compliments to your family *Fluffs up long silk skirt and swoops off, nose in the air, eyes flashing with anger*
