Brian Cox is returning to the UK stage for the first time since 2015.
The Succession star will take on the role of Johann Sebastian Bach in the world premiere of The Score.
Cox was last seen on the Broadway stage in 2019, starring as Lyndon B Johnson in The Great Society, and last performed in the UK in the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh’s 50th anniversary production of Waiting for Godot.
Written by Oliver Cotton and directed by Trevor Nunn, The Score is set in 1747 Prussia and follows Bach’s reluctant visit to the court of Frederick II.
The play will run at Theatre Royal Bath from 12th to 28th October 2023.
