    THE WINTERʼS TALE
    By William Shakespeare
    17 October 2015 – 16 January 2016
    Press performance: 7 November 2pm
    Shakespeareʼs timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption is reimagined in a new production co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh, following their triumphant staging of Macbeth in Manchester and Manhattan. Judi Dench will play Paulina, Kenneth Branagh will play Leontes.
     
    HARLEQUINADE
    by Terence Rattigan
    24 October 2015 – 13 January 2016
    Press performance: 7 November 7.30pm
    In this rarely seen comic gem, a classical theatre company attempts to produce The Winter’s Tale and Romeo and Juliet, while the intrigues and dalliances of the company members are accidently revealed with increasingly chaotic and hysterical consequences… The behind-the-scenes world takes centre stage in Terence Rattiganʼs affectionate celebration of the lunatic art of putting on a play. Kenneth Branagh will perform and co-direct with Rob Ashford.
     
    THE PAINKILLER
    by Francis Veber
    In an adaptation by Sean Foley
    5 March 2016 – 30 April 2016
    Press performance: 17 March 7pm
    Two men. Two lonely hotel rooms. An adjoining door…
    One of them is a killer… one of them wants to die… What could possibly go wrong?
    Sean Foley directs his darkly hilarious adaptation of Francis Veberʼs classic French farce as Kenneth Branagh and Rob Brydon reprise the roles they played to great acclaim at Belfast’s Lyric Theatre in this comic tour-de-force.
     
    ROMEO AND JULIET
    By William Shakespeare
    12 May 2016 – 13 August 2016
    Press performance: 25 May 7pm
    Reuniting the stars of his celebrated film of Cinderella, Kenneth Branagh directs Richard Madden and Lily James who play the leads in Shakespeareʼs heartbreaking tale of forbidden love.
     
    THE ENTERTAINER
    By John Osborne
    20 August 2016 – 12 November 2016
    Press performance: 30 August 7pm
    Set against the backdrop of post-war Britain, John Osborneʼs modern classic conjures the seedy glamour of the old music halls for an explosive examination of public masks and private torment. Rob Ashford directs Kenneth Branagh as the unforgettable Archie Rice.
