BereniceMan Booker Prize winner Alan Hollinghurst's new version of Berenice, Jean Racine's perfect tragedy of unfulfilled passion, comes to the Donmar Warehouse for a two-month run this autumn. Berenice's lover, Titus, is now Emperor of Rome, and she can become his queen. But the people don't approve so Titus must decide between love and rule. Antiochus, Titus' best friend, is sent to comfort her,†but†reveals his own unrequited love for Berenice. Anne-Marie Duff (Shameless, The Virgin Queen, Parade's End) stars in the title role, and Josie Rourke directs.

About The Donmar Warehouse

Housed in an impressive red-brick industrial building - at various times a brewery, a banana warehouse and a film studio - this tiny repertory theatre is one of the great success stories of the 1990s. Created as a studio space for the RSC in 1977, it became a shabby but popular fringe theatre in the 1980s, a testing ground for producers with big ideas but little money.
