Mother and daughter Brigit Forsyth and Zoe Mills will star in the world premiere of Mills' debut play Killing Time.

The comedy follows Sara (Mills) who cares for professional cellist Hester (Forsyth) who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. The play opens at the Park Theatre on 8 February.

Forsyth, best known for her role in the BBC series Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads?, appeared in Now This is Not the End at the Arcola in 2015.

Mills has previously worked with Punchdrunk and the National Theatre, and Killing Time is her first full-length play.

Killing Time runs at the Park Theatre from 8 February until 4 March, with previews from 7 February.
