Isabella Laughland and Marc Wootton have joined the previously announced Monica Dolan, Peter Forbes, Joanna Griffin, Nigel Lindsay, Daniel Mays and Niky Wardley.

Constellations, Payne's last play in London, won the Evening Standard Award for Best New Play and was Olivier-nominated in the same category; after premiering at the Royal Court's Theatre Upstairs, it transferred to the West End's Duke of York's.

The upcoming production will be directed by John Crowley, who returns to the Donmar where he previously directed Tales From Hollywood, Juno and the Paycock, Into the Woods and How I Learned to Drive. Other directorial credits include The Pillowman (National Theatre and Broadway, where he was Tony-nominated), Love Song and On An Average Day (both West End). His film credits include "Intermission" and "Is Anybody There?"

The play is set in the offices of personal injury lawyers Andrew and Barry at Scorpion Claims. When Kevin, Andrew's high school nemesis, appears in his office, the opportunity for a quick win arises. But just how fast does a lie have to spin before it gets out of control?

The production will be designed by Scott Pask, with lighting by Peter Mumford and sound by Christopher Shutt.
