National Theatre reveals autumn schedule

New plays from Mike Leigh, Mike Bartlett and Conor McPherson are to feature in the National Theatre's autumn schedule.

The Olivier will play host to Bartlett's 13 from October 25th, which will follow on from The Kitchen by Arnold Wesker, directed by Bijan Sheibani, which opens on September 7th.

Those on London theatre breaks will be able to pick up Travelex £12 tickets for selected seats at both performances.

Leigh's as yet untitled play, commissioned by National Theatre, will be staged at the Cottesloe Theatre from September 21st, while McPherson's tale of rural Ireland set around a haunted house The Veil opens at the Lyttelton Theatre on October 4th.

Nicholas Hytner’s production of One Man, Two Guvnors is set to hit the road for a tour, stopping off at Edinburgh and Birmingham among other locations, while Leigh's play is set to visit Bath and Cambridge.

Bartlett's Earthquakes in London will also undertake a seven-date tour between September and November.

The National Theatre currently stages more than 20 productions a year at the Olivier, Lyttelton and Cottesloe Theatres.
