Casting news at the Donmar

Have got tickets to see Prince of Homburg at the Donmar next month and it is shaping up to have a great cast according to The British Theatre Guide:

Siobhan Redmond, Ian McDiarmid and Charlie Cox lead the cast in the Donmar Warehouse’s summer production of Heinrich von Kleist’s The Prince Of Homburg, opening on 27th July (previews from 22nd). Also in the cast are David Burke, Sonya Cassidy, Simon Coates, Jolyon Coy, Harry Hadden-Paton, William Hoyland, Mark Theodore, Julian Wadham and Lizzie Winkler.

McDiarmid and Redmond are like acting royalty for me and Cox I'm curious about as I've only seen him on the big screen. Coy and Hadden-Paton (only someone from the fringes of gentry could have such a silly surname) I recently saw in Posh at the Royal Court.

Just hope the play is decent as I've seen a few things at the Donmar in the last couple of years that have had a great cast but the play itself hasn't been that engaging.
