Caroline Quentin is to join the cast of the upcoming production of The Hypocrite.

Richard Bean's play is produced by the RSC and Hull Truck Theatre and opens in March next year. Quentin will star as Lady Sarah Hotham, wife of Sir John Hotham, played by Mark Addy.

Quentin has worked on stage previously in a production of Relative Values at the Theatre Royal Bath as well as being part of the original cast of Les Miserables at the Barbican Theatre.

Addy has starred recently on TV in Game of Thrones and Trollied.

Bean's new comedy is set in 1642 and follows the Governor of Hull who is charged with refusing King Charles I entry into the city.

The production opens in Hull as part of Hull City of Culture 2017 and then moves to Stratford-upon-Avon.

The Hypocrite runs at Hull Truck Theatre between 1 and 25 March with previews from 24 February. It then opens at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon between 31 March and 29 April.
