The Inbetweeners’ Joe Thomas will star in a UK tour of What’s In a Name?, an adaptation of the French comedy Le Prènom.
He will appear alongside Summer Strallen, James Lance and Alex Gaumond in the show, which will tour the UK from September.
The production is an adaptation of the film and stage play Le Prènom, and first premiered in the UK at Birmingham Repertory Theatre in 2017.
The touring production opens at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, where it runs from September 5 to 14, before touring to Glasgow, York, Aylesbury, Cambridge, Windsor, Richmond and Southampton.
Thomas and Strallen will play Vincent and Anna, a couple expecting their first child, who make a “startling revelation” about their chosen name while at dinner with friends, played by Gaumond and Lance.
The production is adapted and directed by Jeremy Sams from the original play by Matthew Delaporte and Alexandre De La Patellière. It will be designed by Francis O’Connor, with lighting by Rick Fisher.
It is produced by Adam Blanshay Productions.
