Full casting has been announced for Sean Foley's revival of Noël Coward's Present Laughter which opens at Chichester Festival Theatre next month.

Joining the previously announced Rufus Hound, Katherine Kingsley and Tracy-Ann Oberman will be Ben Allen, Delroy Atkinson, Lucy Briggs-Owen, Lizzy Connolly, Emilio Doorgasingh, Tamzin Griffin, Carol Macready and Richard Mylan.

Coward's comedy which concerns an actor at the height of his fame and experiencing a mid-life crisis, is about sex, fame and the theatre itself.

The production will be designed by Alice Power, with lighting by Mark Henderson, music and sound by Ben and Max Ringham, and movement by Lizzi Gee.

Present Laughter runs at Chichester Festival Theatre from 26 April to 12 May, with previews from 20 April.
