The Price, Bath Theatre Royal's production of Arthur Miller's play, is to transfer to the West End.

Directed by Jonathan Church, the show opened in Bath in August this year starring David Suchet as furniture dealer Gregory Solomon and Brendan Coyle as New York policeman Victor Franz. Suchet and Coyle will reprise their roles alongside Adrian Lukis who returns to play Victor's brother, Walter Franz, and Sara Stewart as Esther Franz, Victor's wife.

Church's production is the 50th anniversary revival of Miller's play which follows two brothers, Victor and Walter, who meet for the first time in 16 year as they sell their family furniture, kept in the attic of a condemned New York brownstone.

The Price was first seen on Broadway in 1968 and was nominated for two Tony Awards, including Best Play.

The show will run in the West End at Wyndham's Theatre from 5 February to 27 April, with opening night on 11 February. The show features design by Simon Higlett, lighting from Paul Pyant, sound design by Mike Walker, composition by Matthew Scott and associate direction by Emma Butler.
