Stoppard's Jumpers out of the wardrobe for 40th anniversary run
The farce, first performed at the Old Vic by the National Theatre Company in 1972, several years after Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Gildenstern Are Dead launched him to theatrical stardom, sends up the world of academic philosophy, and features an aged professor trying to rehearse a lecture despite the distraction of a nearby murdered corpse.
The Tabard cast will feature Emily Shaw (understudy for Miss Honey in Matilda) as Dotty and Toby Eddington as George. Mark White (Ghost The Musical), Michael McEvoy, Malcolm Freeman and Julie Rose Smith also take the stage in the production directed by Madeleine Loftin and designed by Chris Hone. The show runs until 30 September 2012.
