Casting has been announced for the London premiere of Tennessee Williams' play Confessional, following a run at last year's Edinburgh Fringe.

Lizzie Stanton will reprise the role of Leona, a caravan park beautician who finds out her lazy boyfriend is cheating on her, on the anniversary of her brother's death. She'll be joined by Rob Ostlere (Holby City, Game of Thrones) and Gavin Brocker (Mapp & Lucia).

Raymond Bethley, Simone Somers-Yeates, AF McLoughlin will return to the cast alongside newcomers Jack Archer and Alex Kiffin.

Directed by Jack Silver, Confessional is Williams' first play to feature an openly gay character. It will be produced by Remy Blumenfeld with set design by Justin Williams.

Confessional runs at Southwark Playhouse from 7 to 29 October with previews from 5 October.
