Produced by Michael Harrison and David Ian, Thea Sharrock’s production will open at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton on February 12, before moving to venues including the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff and the Bord Gais Energy Theatre in Dublin, where it plays in July next year.

Further dates and casting details have yet to be announced.

The Bodyguard is based on the film of the same name and has a book by Alex Dinelaris.
