Jeremy Herrin's revival of Julian Mitchell's play, first seen in Chichester last year, runs at Trafalgar Studios 1 from 26 March to 21 June 2014.
Set in a 1930s English public school, the play, a fictionalised account of the youth of such people as the spy Guy Burgess and the Communist John Cornford, centres on two outsiders, one coming to terms with his homosexuality, the other already a committed Marxist.
The cast is led by Will Attenborough, son of director Michael Attenborough, as Judd, and newcomer Rob Callender as Bennett.
