All’s Well That Ends Well features Olivier Award-winning actress Janie Dee (Me & Orson Welles) in a production directed by John Dove. Much Ado About Nothing pairs Olivier Award-winning actress Eve Best (The King’s Speech, “Nurse Jackie”) and Charles Edwards (An Ideal Husband, “Downton Abbey”) as the sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick. Doctor Faustus is a spectacular production of Christopher Marlowe’s tragedy, directed by Matthew Dunster.
