Overview

Sean Foley adapts and directs The Man in the White Suit, the Ealing Comedy classic. The production, which stars Stephen Mangan and Kara Tointon and features a specially written score, will have its world stage premiere at Theatre Royal Bath. It then opens at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre on 26 September 2019.

The iconic 1951 film of the same name starred Alec Guinness, Cecil Parker and Joan Greenwood. A comedic romp in the continuing tradition of Ealing Studios’ thoroughly British post-war catalogue, it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Writing (Screenplay).

Meet Sidney Stratton, the man who has developed an exceptional fabric that never wears out or gets dirty. Manufacturers are up in arms at the threat this new material poses to their livelihoods. As Stratton’s world crumbles, only Daphne Birnley, the daughter of a mill owner, shows him kindness.

Stephen Mangan stars as Sidney. Among other roles, the actor starred in Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense at the Duke of York's Theatre and The Birthday Party at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

Kara Tointon stars alongside Mangan as Daphne. Her previous stage credits include Pygmalion at the Garrick Theatre and Relatively Speaking at the Wyndham's Theatre.

The pair help to make up a 14-strong cast that includes actor musicians and a specially written score.

Sean Foley is the Artistic Director of Birmingham Repertory Theatre. The two-time Olivier Award-winner directed Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense (in which Stephen Mangan starred) and The Ladykillers at the Gielgud Theatre, to name just two from his extensive resume.

Design comes from Michael Taylor (White Christmas, What the Butler Saw).

A delightful, comical and ultimately heart-warming piece, The Man in the White Suit pays homage to the British institution that is Ealing Studios. Catch it at Wyndham’s Theatre from 26 September 2019, with a press night on 8 October.

Please note: Stephen Mangan will not be performing during the week commencing 23 December 2019.
