Lynda Baron and Chris Larkin will again join Zoë Wanamaker in Stevie, when it transfers to Hampstead Theatre on 6 March 2015.

Hugh Whitemore's play gives a "biographical snapshot" of poet Stevie Smith, played by Wanamaker, who worked as a secretary whilst simultaneously writing the work that made her famous, including the poem Not Waving but Drowning.

The production was seen last year at Chichester Festival Theatre, and features Lynda Baron as Aunt, and Chris Larkin as Man.

Lynda Baron has stage credits including The Daughter in Law (Sheffield Crucible), When We Were Married (West End) and Rookery Nook (Menier Chocolate Factory). Chris Larkin has appeared in Noises Off (Old Vic), Yes Prime Minister (West End/UK Tour) and The Whisky Taster (Bush Theatre).

Stevie runs at Hampstead Theatre until 18 April 2015.
