The Finborough Theatre has announced two productions that will join the previously announced National Youth Theatre productions for its autumn season.

Noël Coward's Home Chat will receive its first UK production since 1927, playing in the venue from 30 August to 24 September. The comedy about a married woman's fidelity will be directed by Martin Parr.

The new season will also see the UK premiere of Jason Loewith and Joshua Schmidt's musical Adding Machine. Based on a play by Elmer Rice, the 'anti-musical' has a score inspired by gospel, opera, jazz and rock and roll, and tells of Mr Zero who finds himself out of a job when he is replaced by a machine. Adding Machine runs at the Finborough from 28 September to 22 October.
