Haydn Gwynne: 'I woke up in the middle of the night panicking about The Way of the World'

James Macdonald's production has opened at the Donmar Warehouse

Haydn Gwynne

Following their opening night, we caught up with the cast of the Donmar Warehouse production of William Congreve's The Way of the World.

James Macdonald's production has a cast including Haydn Gwynne, Justine Mitchell, Fisayo Akinade, Tom Mison, Sarah Hadland and Geoffrey Streatfeild.

The Way of the World – a satirical comedy from the 1700s – follows the dysfunctional family of Lady Wishfort. In her review of the show, Sarah Crompton said the piece emerged "with the gleaming richness of a symphony".

The Way of the World runs at Donmar Warehouse until 26 May.
