Stephen Mangan, Kara Tointon and Sue Johnston return to the West End to star in the world premiere of the classic Ealing comedy The Man in the White Suit, adapted and directed by Sean Foley. With original songs by Charlie Fink (Noah and the Whale), this production is designed by Michael Taylor, with lighting by Mark Henderson and sound by Max and Ben Ringham.
When Sidney Stratton (Stephen Mangan) invents a fabric that never gets dirty and never wears out, manufacturers and trades unions are terrified by the threat it poses to their industry and their jobs. Only Daphne (Kara Tointon), the mill owner’s daughter, shows Sidney any support as his world gradually falls apart before he finds love. This fast moving comedy reunites Stephen Mangan and Sean Foley who created the Olivier award-winning production Jeeves and Wooster.
