Further casting has been announced for the upcoming production of Blanche McIntyre's production of Tartuffe at the National Theatre.

Joining the already announced Denis O'Hare will be Olivia Williams as Elmire and Kevin Doyle as Orgon.

The cast also includes Kitty Archer, Nathan Armarkwei-Laryea, Fayez Bakhsh, Susan Engel, Kathy Kiera Clarke, Hari Dhillon, Matthew Duckett, Susan Engel, Henry Everett, Will Kelly, Geoffrey Lumb, Penelope McGhie, Kevin Murphy, Enyi Okoronkwo and Roisin Rae.

John Donnelly's new version of Molière's classic will open on 9 February and currently runs until 30 April.

McIntyre said: "John Donnelly's adaptation is an outrageously funny, savage, brilliant updating of Molière's classic. Molière spoke fearlessly about power and hypocrisy in Tartuffe – so much so that the play was banned more than once. This new version shifts the weight of the central ideas to entertain and disturb an audience of 2019."
