The Man in the White Suit synopsis
Sidney Stratton (Stephen Mangan) invents a fabric that can’t get dirty and will never wear out. Instead of being lauded for this creation, manufacturers and trade unions are terrified by the threat it poses to their industry and to their jobs. These groups, which are usually at odds with each other, come together to protect their best interests. Only Daphne (Kara Tointon), the mill owner’s daughter, seems to support Sidney as he finds himself on the run from the bigwig bosses whilst workers chase “the man in the white suit.” This fast-moving comedy reunites dream duo Stephen Mangan and Sean Foley after their Olivier award-winning production, Jeeves and Wooster.

The Man in the White Suit to close earlier than expected
The producers of West End musical The Man in the White Suit regretfully announce that the show will end its run at Wyndham's Theatre sooner than expected. The reason for the production's early closure is poor ticket sales, which ultimately led to the producers' making the difficult decision to give it the boot.
