Donmar Warehouse announces new season

James Norton and Imogen Poots (pictured) will star in Amy Herzog's play Belleville as part of the newly-announced season at the Donmar Warehouse.

The production, which runs from 7 December to 3 February, will be directed by Donmar debutant Michael Longhurst and will also feature Faith Alabi and Malachi Kirby.

Belleville, which premiered at the Yale Repertory Theatre in 2011, centres on a pair of American newlyweds living in Paris.

It's followed by a revival of Peter Gill's The York Realist, directed by Robert Hastie. The cast includes Ben Batt, Lucy Black, Lesley Nicol, Katie West and Matthew Wilson. Co-produced with Sheffield Theatres, where Hastie is artistic director, it runs from 8 February to 24 March.

Rounding off the season from 29 March to 26 May is Congreve's Restoriation comedy The Way of the World. It will be directed by James McDonald and star Linda Bassett, who previously collaborated on Roots at the Donmar in 2013. 

Donmar artistic director Josie Rourke said: "With this season the Donmar aims to bring audiences world-class artists and essential stories for our times told within the intimate setting of our Covent Garden home."

Next up at the Donmar is newly announced Young Vic artistic director Kwame Kwei-Armah's production of Ibsen's The Lady from the Sea, in a new version written by Elinor Cook, which opens on 12 October.
