London’s Donmar Warehouse has appointed MICHAEL LONGHURST as its new Artistic Director. He will join the theatre in March 2019, taking over from JOSIE ROURKE, who announced her intention to step down earlier this year.

The appointment marks a return for stage director Longhurst, who directed ‘Belleville’ at the theatre last year. He has directed many celebrated and award-winning productions, including a revival of ‘Caroline, or Change’ at Chichester Festival Theatre and the Royal Court’s award-winning 2012 production of Nick Payne’s ‘Constellations’.
