Michael Grandage has revealed that his first project after leaving the Donmar Warehouse will be a 15-month season of theatre with high caliber actors that include Judi Dench, Daniel Radcliffe, Simon Russell Beale and Jude Law. The season will have 100,000 tickets priced at only £10.

Grandage will direct all of the five productions: Privates on Parade starring Simon Russell Beale; Peter and Alice, a new play by John Logan, starring Judi Dench and Ben Wishaw; the first revival of The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh starring Daniel Radcliffe; A Midsummer Night’s Dream with David Walliams as Bottom and Sheridan Smith as Titania; and Henry V starring Jude Law.

The productions will all play at the Noel Coward Theatre.

Grandage said that the discounted tickets would not be “200 stuffed up in the gods, its 200 all over the theatre so that we can be as democratic as possible in the distribution of those seats.”

Other tickets will be priced – £27.50 and £57.50.
