Rush, Armfield to reunite

Tony Award winner Geoffrey Rush and outgoing Company B boss Neil Armfield are set to collaborate on a play next year in what would be a fitting farewell for Armfield.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that even the two men don’t know what the production will be yet, but they are keen to work together again.

It follows the success of their most recent work, Exit The King, which took Australia by storm and went on to New York, where Rush won a prestigious Tony Award.

The production would be part of the 2010 subscription season, and would probably open in November.

Armfield announced earlier this year that he would step down as the Artistic Director of Company B, a company he took to the heights of Australian theatre.

Company B is still searching for a replacement.
