Cut and pasted from the BBC website:

Jerusalem star Mark Rylance is to return to the West End stage in the Shakespeare's Globe productions of Richard III and Twelfth Night.

Rylance, who was the Globe's first artistic director, will play the lead role in Richard III and Olivia in Twelfth Night. Tim Carroll will direct both shows, which will run together for 13 weeks at the Apollo Theatre from 2 November. The productions will open first at the Globe from 14 July.

Rylance was the artistic director of the Globe from its opening in 1995 until 2005. During his tenure he directed and acted in plays every season and became known for exploring Elizabethan theatre practices.
