Maureen Lipman and James Dreyfus are to star in a West End transfer of Harvey later this year.

The revival of Mary Chase’s comedy, which is touring the UK in February and March, will run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from March 17 to May 2. A press night will be held on March 23.

Lipman and Dreyfus will reprise their roles from the tour, alongside David Bamber, Desmond Barrit and Ingrid Oliver. Felicity Dean and Amanda Boxer will also star in the production, with Sally Scott, Youssef Kerkour, Jack Hawkins and Linal Haft completing the cast.

Lindsay Posner will direct the transfer, which is produced by Don Gregory for Harvey West End Ltd in association with Birmingham Repertory Theatre.

Harvey is designed by Peter McKintosh, with lighting by Howard Harrison and sound by Paul Groothuis.
