Greg Wise will star in Kill Me Now at the Park Theatre next month.

The play, a European premiere production, sees director Braham Murray reunite with playwright Brad Fraser for the sixth time. It runs from 24 February to 29 March (previews from 19 February) in Park200.

Wise will be joined in the cast by Oliver Gomm, Charlotte Harwood, Jack McMullen and Anna Wilson-Jones.

According to press material:

There is nothing so serious it can't be laughed at – and laughter is the best medicine. Bruce Lee said "Don't ask for an easy life. Ask to be given the strength to survive a difficult one". Think The Elephant Man crossed with The Odd Couple. If you don't laugh and cry your way through Kill Me Now, ask for your money back!

The production is the first at the Park to be staged in the round. It runs in tandem with the transfer of Torben Betts' Muswell Hill, co-directed by Roger Mortimer and Deborah Edgington, following its run at the White Bear Theatre last year.

Two new cast members – Ralph Aiken and Charlotte Pyke – will join Nicole Abraham, Annabel Bates, Gregory Cox and Jack Johns in the production, which runs from 17 February to 14 March in Park90.
