The brilliant Anne-Marie Duff and Charles Edwards will star in O'Neill's Strange Interlude, dir Simon Godwin, in the Lyttelton, from June.
Bijan Sheibani has a chance to redeem himself after Damned by Despair, by staging Emily and The Detectives in the Olivier from November.
Richard Eyre directs Pirandello's Liola, and Melly Still directs From Morning to Midnight.
Rufus Norris stages James Baldwin's The Amen Corner starring Sharon D Clarke.
And of course Marlowe's Edward II with John Heffernan in the Olivier from September.
And the Xmas kids show will be The Elaphantom in The Shed, dir Marianne Elliot.
So, what do we think?
PS- SRB's Lear is in line for 2014

I assume Othello is planned for the first half of this year as well?
Interesting about Bijan Sheibani - I may book for it just to see what happens; I don't necessarily mind a turkey.

Is Strange Interlude the one where they put masks on to show their inner feelings?

LOVE Charles Edwards and Anne-Marie Duff. I will be logging in at 8.30am for that. I can't look beyond September as I am not sure I will be in London but may be worth booking for Edward II while I still have my Entry Pass!

Eyre was last at the NT for Welcome to Thebes in 2010 (I think), but he works regularly elsewhere: The Last of the Duchess at the Hampstead, Betty Blue Eyes at the Novello, The Dark Earth and the Light Sky at the Almeida and the current Quartermaine's Terms at the Wyndham's are his most recent productions.
