Peaky Blinders actor Paul Anderson is to make his West End debut in Moliere’s Tartuffe.

Anderson will play the title role in the comedy, which runs at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from May 25 to July 28, with press night on May 29.

French actor Audrey Fleurot has also been cast in Tartuffe, playing the role of Elmire.

Moliere, which is directed by Gerald Garutti and adapted by Christopher Hampton, is billed as the West End’s first dual-language production – with a mix of French and English throughout and subtitles.

In the adaptation, Tartuffe is reimagined as an American Evangelist who uproots the life of a French film tycoon in Hollywood.

Additional casting is yet to be announced.

Composition is by Laurent Petitgand with set design by Tim Goodchild, lighting by Paul Anderson and sound by David Gregory.

Tartuffe is produced by Oliver King for Wild Yak and Lee Menzies.
