My City, Stephen Poliakoff's first new play in 12 years, opens tonight (15 September, previews from 8 September 2011) at the Almeida.

Poliakoff also directs the cast, which includes Tracey Ullman, Sian Brooke, Sorcha Cusack, Tom Riley, Hannah Arterton and David Troughton.

My City sees Richard Kenton (Riley) find his headmistress from primary school near St Paul's Cathedral, lying on a park bench. As he becomes reacquainted with her and the other teachers that helped shape him, and begins to rediscover memories of their inspirational lessons and tales of London.

The Almeida have recently released production images from the show. My City continues until 5 November 2011.
