It will begin performances at Studio 3 at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith March 28, prior to an official opening March 30, for a run through April 28.

According to press materials, the play is set in a Sussex manor house where a ghost keeps watch, yearning for the return of her beloved boy. It is described as a supernatural story of love, lost innocence and the parallel world where our departed ones are still present, just beyond reach.

This production, directed by Matthew Parker and featuring original music composed by Maria Haik Escudero that will be performed live, has an ensemble cast of 16, including Joanna Watt, Charlie Kerson, Nicholas Hoad, Phil Bishop, Alec Gray, Sally Preston, Philippa George, Ariel Harrison and Maya Thomas, with more to be announced.

Cave has previously been seen in the West End as Thomasina in the 2009 revival of Tom Stoppard's Arcadia at the Duke of York's, and on the fringe in Lou Ramsden's Breed at Theatre 503. She will appear next on TV in the second series of Simon Amstell's "Grandma's House" for the BBC and in Mike Newell's film adaptation of "Great Expectations," playing Biddy. She will also be presenting a one-woman show Bookworm at this year's Edinburgh Fringe.
