E V Crowe's brand new play is directed by Royal Court artistic director Vicky Featherstone and follows a woman, Viv, who loses her shoe – with disastrous consequences.

The piece has set design by Chloe Lamford, lighting design by Natasha Chivers, composition by Matthew Herbert, sound design by Tony Gayle and movement direction by Sasha Milavic Davies.

Parkinson was most recently seen in Uncle Vanya at Theatre Royal Bath, and will star in the upcoming The Good Life stage adaptation later this year. Meikle's credits include All My Sons, Vassa and Dance Nation. Crowe's other plays include The Sewing Group.

Shoe Lady runs at the Royal Court's downstairs space until 21 March.
