Production images have been released offering a first look at the stage production of Alys, Always at the Bridge Theatre.

Based on the novel of the same name, the play is adapted by Lucinda Coxon and stars Joanne Froggatt and Robert Glenister.

Harriet Lane's 2012 debut novel follows a journalist, Frances (Froggatt), who discovers an upturned car and waits for the ambulances to arrive with the injured driver. Coxon's previous credits include Herding Cats and the screenplay for The Danish Girl.

The piece is directed by the venue's artistic director Nick Hytner and has set design by Bob Crowley with costume designs by Christina Cunningham, lighting by Jon Clark, music by Grant Olding, sound by Gareth Fry and video designs by Luke Halls. It runs from 25 February to 30 March.

Joining Froggatt and Glenister are Danny Ashok (Guards at the Taj) as Sid, Joanna David (Absolute Hell) as Charlotte, Leah Gayer (making her professional debut) as Polly, Simon Manyonda (Barber Shop Chronicles) as Oliver, Sylvestra Le Touzel (Hogarth's Progress) as Mary/Audrey, Jeff Rawle (Allelujah!) as Robin/Mr Thorpe, Vineeta Rishi (Who Cares) as Julia Price, Sue Wallace (Allelujah!) as Mrs Thorpe and Sam Woolf (Antony and Cleopatra) as Teddy.
