When We Are Married to be performed at the Garrick
J B Priestley's When We Are Married is to be revived at the Garrick Theatre later this year with Maureen Lipman in a starring role.
The play is a comedy exploring the themes of class and hypocrisy and is also set to see Sam Kelly and Roy Hudd treading the boards of the West End.
Following three married couples as they celebrate their 25th wedding anniversaries in 1908, the play looks at their reactions and those of the other residents of the village they live in when they discover the vicar who married them was never licensed to do so.
Directed by Tim Luscombe, the new production opens on October 19th, before curtains officially go up on October 27th. When We Are Married is then scheduled to play at the theatre until February 26th 2011.
Another play due to open later this year is the adaptation of Sebastian Faulk's novel Birdsong, with Prince Caspian actor Ben Barnes in the lead role.
