Ryan Craig's new comedy Games for Lovers will have its world premiere at The Vaults in July.

The play, directed by Anthony Banks (The Girl On The Train), follows four millennials who compete in a complex game of rivalry and desire.

Appearing in the comedy will be Evanna Lynch (Disco Pigs, Harry Potter), Billy Postlethwaite (Chernobyl), Tessie Orange-turner (Masterpieces) and Calum Callaghan (Black Mirror).

Craig's other writing credits include Filthy Business, which premiered at the Hampstead Theatre in 2017, and The Holy Rosenbergs at the National Theatre.

The world premiere production will have design by Simon Scullion, lighting by Matt Haskins, sound by Ben and Max Ringham, costume by Susan Kulkarni and casting by Danielle Tarento.

Available at each performance will be front row and intriguingly titled sofa "love seats", which allow audience members to double up and get closer to the action. The piece runs from 12 July ­to 25 August.
