The show, which will open on 25 June and have previews from 17 June, is an autobiographical sex-comedy about the self-obsessed actor Garry Essendine who is preparing for a tour in Africa.

Directed by Matthew Warchus, the show stars Andrew Scott, Indira Varma, Sophie Thompson, Luke Thallon, Suzie Toase, Kitty Archer, Enzo Cilenti, Joshua Hill, Abdul Salis and Liza Sadovy.

Designs for the production are from Rob Howell, lighting from Hugh Vanstone and sound from Simon Baker. The show will run until 10 August.
