Jude Law, Judi Dench and Daniel Radcliffe are among the A-list actors signed up for a new London theatre troupe, which hopes to attract new theatergoers by offering hundreds of £10 (Dh57) tickets for each performance.

Simon Russell Beale, Sheridan Smith, David Walliams and Ben Whishaw are also part of the company formed by director Michael Grandage, who led the award-winning Donmar Warehouse troupe for a decade until early 2012.

On Friday Grandage announced a five-play, 15-month season beginning in December with a production of the musical Privates on Parade.

Future productions include new play Peter and Alice by John Logan, Shakespeare’s Henry V with Law in the title role, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and a production of Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan starring Radcliffe.
