Young Vic to welcome Michael Sheen and Patrick Stewart
Date Posted: 01/02/11
Michael Sheen will take up the role of the Prince of Denmark in Hamlet as he returns to a Shakespeare play for the first time since 1997.
Having taken starring roles in The Queen and The Damned United, the Laurence Olivier Award-nominated actor will be entertaining those booking London theatre breaks at the Old Vic from Friday October 28th.
Following this, Angus Jackson will then bring his Chichester Festival Theatre production of Bingo to the venue from Thursday February 16th 2012, with Patrick Stewart taking up the role of William Shakespeare.
The bio-play focuses on the final years of the Bard's life, where he is left with choices to make over his land and power.
Before these two performances, the Old Vic will see the Mighty Boosh's Julian Baratt and Smack the Pony's Doon Mackichan starring in Government Inspector, which runs from Friday June 3rd to Saturday July 9th.
Recently, Stewart was chosen for the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of The Merchant of Venice, which runs from Friday May 13th at the soon-to-be-reopened Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon.
