Artistic director Josie Rourke has announced her second season at the helm of the Donmar Warehouse. The season, running from winter 2012 into the first half of 2013, is to include an all-female Julius Caesar and the theatre directing debut of Joe Wright.

The season opens with Julius Caesar, which features an all-female cast including Frances Barber, Harriet Walter and Jenny Jules. The production, which runs from 29th November 2012 to 9th February 2013, is directed by Phyllida Lloyd.

This is followed by a new production of Arthur Wing Pinero’s Trelawny of the Wells, running from February through to April. This production marks the first foray into theatre by director Joe Wright, who is best known for films such as Pride and Prejudice and Atonement.

The season concludes with a revival of Conor McPherson’s The Weir, directed by Rourke herself. Rourke’s production, running from 18th April to 8th June, will be the play’s first major London revival since it premiered in 1997. Casting for this production and for Trelawny of the Wells is yet to be announced.
