Stage favourite Rosalie Craig (The Light Princess, NT) heads up a talented cast in Shakespeare's comedy As You Like It, playing the lead role of Rosalind. One of Shakespeare's most enduring and popular comedies, As You Like it combines cross-dressing, satire and intellect in a story of love, justice and court life. Famed for originating the phrase "All the world's a stage", this is also a musical comedy, featuring more songs in this one work than the rest of the Bard's plays put together.

Lorraine Hansberry (A Raisin In The Sun) considered this 1970 work to be her most important. Set in the end days of colony, an African man who was schooled in Western Europe must return to his home country to attend the funeral of his father - who happened to be a revolutionary activist. But when he arrives he finds himself torn between the struggles of his family and fellow citizens, and the life he has become accustomed to in the West. When he is asked to step into his father's shoes, he faces a stark choice - to lead the insurgency against the colonial powers, or to return home and leave his family to their fate.

Homegrown stage and film star Rory Kinnear is set to lead Kurt Weill and poet-playwright Bert Brecht's satirical opera, in itself a nod to the Beggar's Opera as part of the 2016 National Theatre season led by Rufus Norris. The double Olivier Award winner will star as anti-hero Macheath (or Mack The Knife) in this play with songs, set in the Victorian era of London.
