Luke Treadaway and Imogen Poots will join the cast of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? when it opens next year.

The pair join the previously announced Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill for the new production of Pulitzer prize-winner Edward Albee's play when it opens at The Harold Pinter Theatre on 9 March 2017.

Treadaway (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) will play Nick, a new professor at an American college who has been invited, along with his wife Honey, for some after-party drinks by Martha (played by Staunton). As the night progresses, Nick and Honey are drawn in to Martha and husband George's (played by Hill) toxic relationship.

Poots, best known for her role as Tammy in the film 28 Weeks Later, will make her West End debut as Honey.

Directed by James Macdonald, the play will be designed by Tom Pye and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions and Tulchin Bartner Productions.
