My Fair Lady was last seen on the London stage as Professor Henry Higgins to Martine McCutcheon's on again-off again Eliza Doolittle in Trevor Nunn's award-winning revival of My Fair Lady, first at the National and then the West End's 2,200-seat Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

In addition to My Fair Lady and his other musical roles in Miss Saigon and Oliver!, Pryce has previously appeared on the London stage in Uncle Vanya, The Seagull and numerous productions for the RSC. On film, his credits include Evita!, Stigmata, Ronin, Carrington, The Age of Innocence, Glengarry Glen Ross, Jumping Jack Flash and the upcoming The Pirates of the Caribbean, amongst many others.

Montgomery's stage credits include, in Ireland, Miss Julie and Neil Labute's The Shape of Things and bash. On screen, she's been seen in When Brendan Met Trudy, Goldfish Memory, Benedict Arnold, Monarch of the Glen and Poirot.

In A Reckoning, written by American Wesley Moore, Pryce and Montgomery play a father and daughter whose relationship comes under intense scrutiny and strain with the accusation of sexual abuse. The two-hander will be directed by Richard Seyd.
