The drama, which has been adapted for the screen by Penhall, will be helmed by the play's director Roger Michell, and also stars Anna Maxwell Martin as Ed's high-flying executive wife Lisa. The role was played on stage by Lisa Dillon.
The show features as part of Sky Arts' new drama season, and also sees original cast members Louise Brealey (Sherlock) and Llewella Gideon return to their roles of the couple's registrar Natasha and nurse Joyce respectively.
Stephen Mangan said of the adaptation: "We've long known that Birthday would make a wonderful TV drama and we're delighted that Sky Arts shared our vision."
