Theatre503 are transferring two of their shows to the Trafalgar Studios later this year in a West End season in their Studio 2.

Former Boyzone star Keith Duffy will reprise his role in Billy Roche's A Handful of Stars, which originally ran last month, from 1 to 25 July 2014 (previews from 25 June). The transfer marks Duffy's West End debut.

The show, which formed part of Theatre503's Second Look series, also includes in the cast Ciarán Owens, Maureen O'Connell, Brian Fenton, Colm Gormley, Michael O'Connor and Michael O'Hagan.

The second West End transfer will be Chris Urch's Land of Our Fathers, running from 5 September to 4 October 2014 (previews from 2 September).

Depicting two weeks in the lives of a community of Welsh miners on the eve of the 1979 General Election, it stars Clive Merrison, Kyle Rees, Taylor Jay-Davies and Joshua Price.

The transfers see the first West End return for Theatre503 since their Olivier Award-winning The Mountaintop in 2009. Both productions are directed by artistic director Paul Robinson.
