Casting has been confirmed for Will Keith's production of Soho Cinders which will have a nine week run from 24 October at London's Charing Cross Theatre.
West End stars Luke Bayer and Millie O'Connell head the cast of the show which is written by George Stiles, Anthony Drewe and Elliot Davis.
Luke was alternate Jamie in Everybody's Talking About Jamie at the Apollo theatre and Millie ends her Olivier Award-nominated reign as Anne Boleyn in the smash-hit musical SIX at the Arts theatre on October 13.
The writers commented ...
"In 2000, we sat in Regent's Park discussing what we'd like to write next.
Honk! had just won the Olivier Award at The National Theatre, and we felt we should choose a subject that challenged us and perhaps took the audience by surprise.
We wanted to write about London, why people had become disenchanted by politics, and the complexities of love.
We also wanted to write a fable - our story is about a love that blossoms between two people of different backgrounds and generations, and what they learn from each other.
Soho Cinders holds a very special place in our hearts; when Elliot came on board as co-bookwriter, it was the start of a very happy creative collaboration which has seen many more adventures around the world.
We are absolutely delighted the show is making a return to the heart of our city in Will Keith's production."
