Doctor Who star Arthur Darvill is among the cast of thespians who’ll be bringing a selection of classic plays to the big screen this autumn, when three stage productions filmed at London’s Globe Theatre are screened in cinemas.

As well as Darvill, who plays Mephistopheles in Doctor Faustus, the films also include the likes of King’s Speech actress Eve Best taking centre stage in Much Ado and small-screen veteran Michael Bertenshaw heading up the cast in All’s Well.


All’s Well will open in British cinemas on Wednesday 26 September, Much Ado on 10 October and Faustus on 24 October, and you can find more information about the season at the Globe on Screen website.
