Production history[edit]

Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the play began previews at the Noel Coward Theatre on 27 September 2017, with an official opening night on 2 October. It concluded its limited run on 2 December 2017.[2] The opening was delayed by a week due to Sarah Lancashire dropping out of the production on doctors advice, with Tamsin Greig replacing her.[1]
