Hampstead Theatre’s production of Good People is to replace The Full Monty at the Noel Coward Theatre.

David Lindsay-Abaire’s play will run at the venue for 10 weeks from April 10, with press night on April 15.

It is currently playing at the Hampstead Theatre until April 5.

Original cast members Imelda Staunton and Lloyd Owen are to reprise their roles from the Hampstead production when it runs in the West End. Further casting has not yet been confirmed.

Good People replaces The Full Monty, which announced this week that it was finishing its run three months earlier than planned, on March 29.

Edward Hall, artistic director at the Hampstead Theatre, said: “I am utterly delighted that Good People is having this very well-deserved West End run: it’s a truly brilliant play beautifully directed, and the cast are astonishingly good in it. It was sold out at Hampstead before those really great reviews appeared, so it’s especially pleasing that many people who would otherwise have been disappointed will now have a chance to catch it.”

It will be produced by Old Vic Production and Hampstead Theatre and is directed by Jonathan Kent, with design by Hildegard Bechtler.
