I'm most looking forward to Strange Interlude as I've never seen it. I was thinking about O'Neill the other day wondering what Kevin Spacey would be doing in his final two years. I hope the Lear will be as good as it should be. I have loved the work of both, but fear it can't live up to expectations, and I do think that the Sam Mendes Bridge Project productions were only very good, rather than truly great. They didn't have the power of his best work at the RSC and the Donmar. I'm always interested to see good productions of European classics, but wonder if the NT is choosing the right plays. With the Ferdinand Brückner a few years ago and the Kaiser now I wonder if they're not going for plays that are minor even in Germany. And I've rarely been convinced by a British Pirandello production - it will need a major name in the cast I would have thought.

SRB might have waited another decade to give us his Lear. Frankly, after all the shows he has been in over the last 18 months he has delighted me long enough, but perhaps I'll be hungry for more by 2014. Brave move to give Bijan Sheibani another show in the Olivier - I thought he might have been given his marching orders after Damned by Despair.

It is in the way of these announcements to contain one or two things that don't happen and omit several things that do.
