This time, however, it will be staged in the Lyttelton Theatre, and will be part of the Travelex £12 season.

Kinnear has previously appeared at the National Theatre in Burnt by the Sun, The Revenger's Tragedy, Philistines, Southwark Fair and The Man of Mode (the latter of which won him an Olivier Award and the 2007 Ian Charleson Award). He has previously played Laertes to Ben Whishaw's Hamlet at the Old Vic, and other Shakespearean credits include starring in the Almeida's Measure for Measure and seasons with the RSC that included The Taming of the Shrew and Cymbeline. He has also appeared in Mary Stuart at the Donmar Warehouse and Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, and Festen at the Lyric. His screen credits include "Quantum of Solace," "Margaret Thatcher – The Long Walk to Finchley," "Mansfield Park," "Lennon Naked," "Cranford" and "The Thick of It."

The production is designed by Vicki Mortimer, with lighting by Jon Clark, sound by Paul Groothuis and fight direction by Kate Waters.

It was broadcast to cinemas across the UK and worldwide on Dec. 9, 2010, as part of the second season of National Theatre Live.
