Fiona Shaw and George Mackay will complete the cast line-up for the National Theatre's Courage Everywhere festival.

Shaw was most recently seen in the hit TV show Killing Eve and has a huge number of stage credits, while MacKay's appearances include Sunshine on Leith and Captain Fantastic and will star in the upcoming film Ophelia.

Shaw will perform in Bryna Turner's new comedy Bull in a China Shop, directed by Phyllida Lloyd (Tina). Set in a Massachusetts seminary, Shaw joins the previously announced cast composed of Jade Anouka, Clare Dunne, Leah Harvey and Sally Rogers. It will run for one night on 17 November.

Mackay will be joining Nadia Fall's production of Rebecca Lenkiewicz Her Naked Skin, which will feature Paul Bazely, David Calder, Lois Chimimba, Erin Doherty, Deborah Findlay, Kate Fleetwood, Andrew Havill, Tunji Kasim, Isabella Laughland, Penny Layden, Francesca Mills, Sarah Ridgeway and Michael Shaeffer. It runs on the same day but at 3pm. Lenkiewicz's play first premiered ten years ago in the Olivier.

The two shows will form part of the Courage Everywhere festival lineup, which was announced last week. The festival celebrates 100 years of women's suffrage since the first women in the UK were given the right to vote.
