They join Mark Gatiss and Ian Hallard who were previously announced to play Harold and Michael.
Mark Gatiss and Ian Hallard said, “We are thrilled to be a part of this production, which will bring this classic gay play back to London for the first time in eighteen years. The script is razor sharp, with huge amounts of wit and pathos, and is as fresh, startling and relevant as it was back in 1968. It’s tremendously exciting to be working with a superb creative and production team who are bringing the show to Park Theatre. And we can’t wait to work together on stage for the first time.”
The Boys In The Band is directed by Adam Penford.
