Curry will play the Player King in a new Nunn-directed production of Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead that will transfer to the Haymarket, beginning performances June 16 for a run through Aug. 20, after opening as part of the previously announced season at Chichester Festival's Minerva Theatre, where it will play May 20-June 11. Further casting is to be confirmed, though London's Daily Mail reports that Samuel Barnett and Jamie Parker – both alumni of the original National Theatre, Broadway and film cast of The History Boys – are in discussion to play the title roles.

Next, Ralph Fiennes will return to the legitimate stage to star as Prospero in Nunn's new production of The Tempest, which is due to begin performances Aug. 27 for a run through Oct. 29.

The box office has not yet opened for these productions.
