A bit of Heffernan a day!


Not only he was brilliant reading “Iliad” for the Almeida Theatre and the British Museum on Friday, 14 August 2015, as part of a cast of 60 performers along the day (tweets), talking with his lovely voice and moving hands in his own peculiar, fascinating way (a detail I loved so much in his wonderful “Oppenheimer” performance, too).

John Heffernan was also announced to play the title role in the incoming production of “Macbeth” at the Young Vic Theatre and Anna Maxwell Martin will play Lady Macbeth, from 26 November 2015 to 16 January 2016 http://www.youngvic.org/whats-on/macbeth before transferring to Birmingham REP (26 to 30 January 2016) and HOME in Manchester (Tue 2 – Sat 6 February 2016).

The cast also includes Mark Ebulue, Thomasin Gulgeç, Ira Siobhan Mandela, Ana Beatriz Meireles, Prasanna Puwanarajah & Clemmie Sveaas.

I’m so excited for this news, as Macbeth is one of the greatest play Shakespeare wrote and I would really like to see it with such fine cast! *sighs*
