John Osborne's Luther, directed by Peter Gill, designed by Alison Chitty and starring Rufus Sewell, starts previewing at the Olivier auditorium at the National Theatre on Sept. 29, with an opening night on Oct. 5.
Osborne's play looks at the career of the radical religious reformer whose challenge to the established tenets of the Catholic Church led to the Protestant reformation.
Rufus Sewell was last seen in the West End in Macbeth, in a production that seemed - in box office and indeed critical respects at least - to have been touched by the traditional misfortune that befalls Shakespeare's Scottish play.
