Helen Atkinson Wood will replace Connie Fisher in a production of Noel Coward’s The Vortex at the Rose Theatre Kingston.
Atkinson Wood, who has appeared in TV show Blackadder, will play the role of singer Clara Hibbert in the production. Fisher pulled out of the show in December due to “ongoing vocal issues”.
Previously announced cast members Kerry Fox, James Dreyfus and David Dawson will be joined by Sophie Rundle, William Chubb, Rebecca Johnson, Jack Hawkins, John Cummins and Helen Fletcher.
Directed by Stephen Unwin, the show will run from February 7 to March 2.
The Vortex is being produced in association with Kingston University.
