LuPone and Gallagher star in the Jeremy Sams-directed staging of the 1982 Michael Frayn farce about the backstage foibles of a fifth-rate theatre company touring the English provinces in a terrible sex farce. Tony Award-winners Richard Easton (The Invention of Love), Faith Prince (Guys and Dolls) and the much-lauded Katie Finneran share in the merriment of the 19-year-old script, which Frayn revised for the London revival and this staging.
