Rehearsal images have been released ahead of tonight's special reading of David Hare's play Stuff Happens.

The play is inspired by Donald Rumsfeld's response to the looting of Baghdad at a press conference in 2003, to which he said: "Stuff happens". The play is being read tonight to coincide with Sir John Chilcot's report into the Iraq War.

Bill Nighy will narrate the play, which explores the process leading up to the Iraq War.

The cast includes Danny Sapani, Alex Jennings, Adjoa Andoh, Isla Blair, Raad Rawi, Iain Mitchell, Tom Colley, Anton Lesser, Nicholas Woodeson, Simon Paisley Day and Sirine Saba.

Stuff Happens will run on 6 July at the Lyttelton Theatre.
