In 2017, the National Theatre will welcome back Andrew Garfield to its stage. In an announcement unveiling the venue’s slate for 2016 and beyond, artistic director Rufus Norris announced that the actor will star in Angels in America.

Marianne Elliot (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, War Horse) will direct the new production of Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which allows Garfield — who will play the role of Prior Walter — to return to the National following his performance in Burn/Chatroom/Citizenship and The Overwhelming in 2006 and 2007.

Garfield isn’t the only prominent actor set to take the stage at the National. Anna Chancellor, Rosalie Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Tamsin Greig, Rory Kinnear, James McArdle, Helen McCrory and Elizabeth McGovern are among those tapped to star in productions such as Young Chekhov, Amadeus, The Seagull, Twelfth Night, Peter Pan, and The Threepenny Opera.
