The final show at pop-up venue Found111 has been announced as Sam Shepard's Fool for Love.

Based on Charing Cross Road, the theatre has been home to productions such as The Dazzle which starred Andrew Scott, and Unfaithful which featured Harry Potter actor Matthew Lewis.

The play is about couple Eddie and May who argue whilst they're confined to a grubby motel room in the the Mojave Desert.

Adam Rothenberg will make his London stage debut alongside his Ripper Street co-star Lydia Wilson, who received an Olivier nomination for her role as Kate Middleton in King Charles III. The cast also includes Joe McGann and Luke Neal.

Simon Evans will direct the production, which is produced by Emily Dobbs.

Fool for Love runs at Found111 from 31 October to 17 December, with previews from 26 October.
