The season also features a new play for theatre and television about the 2015 general election and the world premiere of a new Steve Waters drama.
Artistic Director Josie Rourke revealed the season's line-up on the Donmar Warehouse Twitter account this morning (November 3).
The Olivier Award-winning play Closer by Patrick Marber is being revived, after it won multiple awards in 1997 and was turned into a hit film in 2004 starring Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman, Jude Law and Clive Owen.
Marber said of the revival: 'I'm thrilled to be returning to the Donmar with this revival of Closer. David Leveaux is a director I've longed to work with for many years. I'm greatly looking forward to this collaboration with him, »
It’s a question that has been on many a fan’s mind. Well, several. Well, mostly Warwick’s to be honest: will the man who played Wicket in Return Of The Jedi and the Ewok spin-off films before appearing in The Phantom Menace in a variety of roles show up in Star Wars: Episode VII?
