Directed by Nicholas Hytner (the venue's artistic director), also on the piece's creative team are associate director James Cousins, with set designs by Vicki Mortimer, costumes designed by Khadija Raza, lighting by Jon Clark, sound by Gareth Fry and music supervised by George Fenton.

Performances have gone on sale with socially distanced seating, though when government guidelines allow, these performances will move to full seating capacity.
