Sue Johnston has joined the cast of The Man in the White Suit, which opens in Bath and the West End later this year.
The Royle Family actor joins the previously announced Stephen Mangan and Kara Tointon in the cast of the comedy, which is based on the Ealing classic film and is being brought to the stage for the first time.
Johnston will play Mrs Watson in the production, and further casting is to be announced.
The Man in the White Suit is adapted and directed by Sean Foley, with design by Michael Taylor.
It opens at Theatre Royal Bath on September 5, before transferring to Wyndham’s Theatre in London, where it runs from September 26 to January 11, 2020.
It is produced by Jenny King, Jonathan Church, Matthew Gale and Mark Goucher, by special arrangement with Studiocanal.
