Edward Hall's all-male theatre troupe Propeller will bring Shakespeare's Richard III and The Comedy of Errors (in repertory) to the Huntington Theatre Company in May.

Hall's 14-member cast will begin performances in Boston May 18 as the final stop of its U.S. tour. Previous stops include the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the University of Michigan.

Richard III and The Comedy of Errors will officially open May 21 for a repertory run through June 19. Propeller will return to the U.K. for additional tour stops following the Boston run, which is co-presented with the Boston University School of Theatre.

"Ed's production of Two Men of Florence was a monumental experience my first season, and I am delighted now to bring his dynamic company to Boston," Huntington artistic director Peter DuBois said in a statement. "Propeller’s actors are incomparably talented – they hit the darkest notes of the drama and the antic shenanigans of the comedy. Boston audiences will want to make sure they see both of these productions to fully appreciate the scope of Propeller’s theatrical skill."

The cast includes Tony Bell, Kelsey Brookfield, Dugald Bruce-Lockhart, Wayne Cater, Richard Clothier, John Dougall, Richard Frame, Robert Hands, Chris Myles, David Newman, Thomas Padden, Sam Swainsbury, Dominic Tighe and Jon Trenchard.

The works have costume and production design by Michael Pavelka, lighting design by Ben Ormerod, composition and sound design by David Gregory, music by Propeller, and additional arrangements and original music by Jon Trenchard. Phone (617) 266-0800 or visit Huntington Theatre.
