Has there been anything announced or rumored about this show, slated for the National in "spring 2023?" I'll be in London in May for the first time, hoping to catch something at the National. They haven't announced anything other than Lehmann Trilogy, which I've seen.

The National has been keeping quiet on this one, but they finally released some rehearsal photos last week. It starts previews tomorrow, and it looks like the majority of the run is sold out. I am assuming, and maybe wrongfully so, that this will transfer to the Gielgud after The Crucible finishes it's run in September. The runtime for the show is listed at two hours and 40 minutes.

I am not above admitting that I checked British theatre news sites daily until dates and casting were announced, bought tickets the day they went on sale and just started the second of the two books the play is based on.
