The European premiere of Paula Vogel’s Indecent and a revival of Alan Bennett’s Habeas Corpus will be staged at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory as part of its spring season.
Indecent, which ran on Broadway in 2017 and won two Tony awards, explores the origins of Sholem Asch’s controversial play The God of Vengeance.
It will be directed at the Menier by Rebecca Taichman, who directed the original production, winning a Tony award for her work.
Indecent runs from March 13 to May 9, with press night on March 23. It is produced by the Menier in association with Daryl Roth, Elizabeth I McCann and Cody Lassen.
This will be followed by a new production of Alan Bennett’s comedy Habeas Corpus, directed by Patrick Marber.
This begins performances on May 15, with press night on May 21. It is due to run until July 4.
Elsewhere, The Boy Friend, which is running at the London theatre until March, will transfer to the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, starring Kelsey Grammer.
Grammer will play Lord Brockhurst in Matthew White’s revival of the musical, however no further casting has yet been announced.
In London, the company includes Janie Dee and Adrian Edmondson.
The production will run in Toronto from March 31 to May 3.
