Wilderness), Anthony Calf (Private Lives, The Hard Problem), Sam Callis (Hay Fever), Simon Chandler (Red Velvet), Nick Fletcher (A Doll’s House, Treasure Island), Stella Gonet (Top Girls, Handbagged), Jo Herbert (3 Winters), Yolanda Kettle (Birdland), Justine Mitchell (Mr Burns), Matilda Ziegler (Machinal, An Inspector Calls).

Director Howard Davies’s numerous credits include award-winning productions of The White Guard, Mourning Becomes Electra and All My Sons (all for the National Theatre), The Iceman Cometh (Almeida Theatre and West End), and the original RSC production of Piaf (also West End and Broadway).

Design is by William Dudley, with Lighting by Mark Henderson and Sound by Mike Walker.
