The Donmar Warehouse has announced its 2012-2013 season, according to

The season opens on November 29 with Phyllida Lloyd's all-female production of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, which will star Frances Barber as Caesar, Harriet Walter as Brutus, Jenny Jules as Cassisus, Cush Jumbo as Mark Anthony, Jade Anouka as Calpurnia, and Clare Dunne as Portia.

Up next, will be film director Joe Wright's production of Trelawny of the Wells (February 15-April 13), which concerns a Victorian actress who renounces her love of theater in order to marry an aristocrat -- much to the dismay of his family.

It will be followed by artistic director Josie Rourke's revival of Conor McPherson's The Weir, beginning on April 18, about a group of Irish men who tell ghost stories in order to impress a young woman.

Additional casting and creative teams will be announced at a later date.
