Roger Michell stages the work featuring Atkins and a cast that includes Paul Chahidi, Anna Maxwell Martin, Con O'Neill, Sophie Thompson and Sam Kelly. The play centers on "a feminist literary giant who is suffering from an extreme case of writer's block as deadline after deadline comes – and goes – on her next book," according to show notes.
