Sherlock fans, if you thought the exciting news about Benedict Cumberbatch playing Hamlet in London gave you a year to save up, this might be slightly upsetting.
It seems that Martin Freeman has signed up to play Shakespeare’s villainous Richard III in a new production at Trafalgar Studios, later this year.
The play, directed by Jamie Lloyd, forms part of this year’s Trafalgar Transformed season, which last year played host to James McAvoy as Macbeth, and John Simm and Simon Russell Beale in a staging of Harold Pinter’s The Hothouse.
You can rest assured, the moment we find out that Una Stubbs is playing Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, you’ll be the first to know…
