Reimagined by Henry Filloux-Bennett (Nigel Slater’s Toast, The Understudy) and directed by Tamara Harvey (Home, I’m Darling), the production features an all-star cast including Jonathan Bailey, Samuel Barnett, Robert Bathurst, Fiona Button, Sharon D. Clarke, Alfred Enoch, Rebecca Front, Stephen Fry, Celia Imrie, Sir Derek Jacobi, Griff Rhys Jones, Dervla Kirwan and Tamzin Outhwaite.
