Joe Wright to direct first theatre project

London: Filmmaker Joe Wright is preparing for his directorial debut in theatre after signing Arthur Wing Pinero`s ‘Trelawny of the Wells’.

The show is set to debut at the Donmar Warehouse in February next year, reports

"Joe is one of the leading lights of British film. It feels very apt that having grown up in a theatre, Joe should be directing `Trelawny of the Wells`, as it`s a play set in that corner of London, and a love letter to actors and life in the theatre," said Josie Rourke, the venue`s artistic director.
