Cast set for ‘Recruiting Officer’

Crook, Carroll set for Donmar Warehouse production

Mackenzie Crook (“Jerusalem”) and Olivier Award winner Nancy Carroll (“After the Dance” ) lead the Donmar Warehouse cast of “The Recruiting Officer.”

The production of George Farquhar’s 18th-century military and marital comedy, which ushers in the tenure of incoming a.d. Josie Rourke, also stars Mark Gatiss, Tobias Menzies and Rachael Stirling. Rourke’s production runs Feb. 9-April 14, with a Feb. 14 press night.

The Donmar also announced the purchase of a 19th-century warehouse close to the theater to be converted into rehearsal, education and office space on a 112-year lease. It will take up residence in 2014. (In 2008 the theater purchased its Covent Garden home from its current landlord, Ambassador Theater Group.)

Michael Grandage said Thursday, “In today’s marketplace, it isn’t quite enough to hand over a theater with a strong reputation; it needs to have security as well. I am delighted that after nearly a decade at the helm, I leave the Donmar financially confident. From owning nothing, the Donmar now looks to the future with its own theater, rehearsal space, education space and office space occupying these two prime sites in Covent Garden.”
