Farr & Hicks Tackle a Third Classic???

By • West End
Director David Farr is hoping to reunite with actor Greg Hicks in the near future. Now artistic director of west London’s Lyric Hammersmith, Farr has worked with Hicks twice before, directing him in the title roles of Coriolanus for the Royal Shakespeare Company and, last year, Tamburlaine at Bristol Old Vic (where he was then joint artistic director) and the Barbican. No word yet on which play the two are lining up or where it will be staged. It probably won’t be staged at the Lyric Hammersmith, which Farr has positioned very much as a house for experimental and usually quite physical new work. In this week’s “Changing of the Guard” with (See Features, 9 Oct 2006), Farr explained: “I’m looking at something else to do with Greg now. Because I’m not going to do that sort of classical drama here, it may be somewhere else.”
