Images have been released of Rhys Ifans, Indira Varma and the cast of Patrick Marber's Exit the King, which opens at the National Theatre this week.

Marber directs his new version of Ionesco's 1962 absurdist drama which tells of the last day of the 400 year-old King Bérenger's life. The all-star cast also features Adrian Scarborough, Debra Gillett, Derek Griffiths and Amy Morgan.

The production has design by Anthony Ward, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, and music and sound by Adam Cork.
