JPMorgan pays $100M, admits fault in London trades
That continues at the Noel Coward until 16 November. And the following month brings Grandages take on the bellicose poetry of Henry V. Jude Law, in the role of the charismatic king, pretty much guarantees returns queues round the block. Also raising the star power and sex appeal of the Bard this season is the Royal Shakespeare Company, which in December brings Gregory Dorans production of Richard II to the Barbican Theatre, with David Tennant as the monarch (a fine actor still best known to British audiences for BBC TVs Doctor Who). Meanwhile at the Donmar, Josie Rourke directs a new staging of the bloody Roman tragedy Coriolanus. Its a good season, too, for Ibsen fans: Carrie Cracknells wildly acclaimed A Dolls House, with its claustrophobic, revolving domestic-prison set and a blazing performance from Hattie Morahan as Nora, continues until 26 October at the Duke of Yorks. And from 3 October theatre veteran Richard Eyres new production of Ghosts is at the Almeida. Staying with the Scandinavian theme, Jack Thornes stage version of Let The Right One In a vampire horror drama based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist and subsequent film will be casting its chilly spell over Londons leading new writing theatre, the Royal Court, from 29 November. But those looking for new writing with a distinctly British flavour could head north, to the Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn, for Moira Buffinis Handbagged, in which the Iron Lady and former Prime Minister, the late Margaret Thatcher faces down the Queen. It plays until 9 November. For something sillier, and as English as warm beer and cricket whites, punters with a taste for nostalgia can opt for Jeeves and Wooster: Perfect Nonsense at the Duke of Yorks, running from 30 October. Romantics will struggle to resist Jumpers for Goalposts, a touching gay love story among the players on a hopeless pub soccer team, by the rising young writing talent Tom Wells. It plays at the Bush the diminutive fringe new-writing venue with a mighty reputation from 26 November. Likely to be far knottier is nut, the new play by incendiary writing talent debbie tucker green. The lower-case styling of her name and the works title are indicative of her terse intensity; her previous pieces, jaggedly poetic dramas on subjects including urban street violence and domestic abuse, have been short, sharp and shocking.
