The newly released production shots for The Man in the White Suit are dynamite! Currently running at London's Wyndham's Theatre for previews, the visually stunning play stars Stephen Mangan (Green Wing) as the inventor of an "unosoilable" suit, Sidney Stratton, alongside Kara Tointon (Pygmalion at the Garrick Theatre) as love interest Daphne Birnley and Sue Johnston (Downton Abbey) as Mrs Watson.
The cast is completed by Richard Cordery (The Importance of Being Earnest, Spring Awakening) as Birnley and Richard Durden (Postcards from London, The Awakening, From Paris With Love) as Sir John, alongside Ben Deery, Delroy Atkinson, Elliott Rennie, Eugene McCoy, Katherine Toy, Katie Bernstein, Matthew Durkan, Oliver Kaderbhai, and Rina Fatania.
The Man in the White Suit plot and creative team
After inventing a fabric that essentially acts as a dirt repellant, many textile factory workers fear for their jobs and form an angry mob. Soon everyone is on the hunt for the man in the white suit, but in the end, is the garment tailored to fail or will its self-cleaning properties be Sidney's downfall? Find out at Wyndham's Theatre this autumn!
The play is directed by Sean Foley, who is reunited with his The Ladykillers collaborator, Michael Taylor. The Man in the White Suit features music by Noah and the Whale's Charlie Fink, lighting design by Mark Henderson, sound design by Ben and Max Ringham, choreography by Lizzi Gee, song arrangements by Phil Bateman, and fight direction by Alison De Burgh. The play is based on another play entitled The Flower Within the Bud, written by Roger MacDougall and adapted for the silver screen by Alexander Mackendrick, John Dighton, and MacDougall. The hit film from 1951 starred Cecil Parker, Alex Guinness, and Joan Greenwood.
