1st Night Photos: Cox is Donmar Prince Charming
Date: 28 July 2010
Last night (27 July 2010, previews from 22 July) saw the opening of the Donmar Warehouse production of The Prince of Homburg, directed by Jonathan Munby and starring Charlie Cox.
The play, written by Heinrich von Kleist in 1809, takes place in 17th-century Prussia rather than 18th-century France and follows the idealistic Prince of Homburg as he is sentenced to death for disobeying military orders, despite returning victorious from the battlefields of Fehrbellin.

Von Kleist’s original verse is given a modern lick of prose paint by writer Dennis Kelly and director Jonathan Munby. Charlie Cox's Prince is counterpointed by Ian McDiarmid’s villainous Elector of Brandenburg. The cast also includes: Sonya Cassidy (Natalia, Princess of Orania), Julian Wadham (Marshall Dorfling), Siobhan Redmond (The Electress) and David Burke (Colonel Cotwitz). The production will run at the Donmar Warehouse until 4 September.
