Cast and creative team have been announced for Alexis Michalik's Intra Muros, which has its UK premiere at the Park Theatre in April.

Directed by Ché Walker (Been So Long), the piece is a metatheatrical story of an ageing actor who prepares to direct his first theatre class in a maximum security prison. The show features live music and on-stage DJ mixing provided by Rio Kai.

Summer Strallen (Young Frankenstein) will appear as social worker Alice, alongside Walker as Richard, Victor Gardener (Frank Sent Me) as Angel, Emma Pallant (A Christmas Carol) as Jane and Declan Perring (Sam) as Kevin.

The play first opened in Paris in 2017 and is translated for its UK premiere by Pamela Hargreaves. It runs from 3 April to 4 May at north London's Park Theatre.
