Starring Jemma Redgrave (Lady Driver), Jason Durr (Quine) and Jamie Glover (Headingley), the production will be directed by Lisa Spirling.

The play sees six former students return to their university college for a reunion dinner, 25 years after graduation. Locked in college for the night, the graduates begin to relive their youth, with all its chaotic friendships and feuds.

Jason Durr is best known for playing ‘PC Mike Bradley' in Heartbeat (ITV). On stage, Durr has most recently been playing the title role in Sherlock Holmes (West Yorkshire Playhouse and Tour), and other credits include Volcano (Tour), Wrong Side of the Rainbow (Donmar Warehouse) and Losing Louis (Hampstead).

Jamie Glover was recently seen playing Garry Lejeune in the Old Vic's award-winning revival of Frayn's Noises Off (Old Vic). Other theatre credits include All's Well That End's Well and Richard III (Royal Shakespeare Company), and The Chalk Garden (Donmar Warehouse).
