Mark Gatiss celebrated the opening night of Dry Powder at Hampstead with the likes of Jemima Rooper, Gethin Anthony, Ed Hall, Lolita Chakrabarti and Adrian Lester. They joined the cast which includes Hayley Atwell and Aidan McArdle to mark the opening of Sarah Burgess' piece.

The play focuses on a private equity fund that is going through PR trouble and the founding partners battle over whether to buy a suitcase company and strip its assets or invest in it.

Anna Ledwich directs the piece, which marks the play's UK premiere. Read our review of the show here.
