The cast comprises Hannah Arterton (Waitress), Siân Brooke (Julie), Sorcha Cusack (Summers), Tom Riley (Richard), David Troughton (Minken) and Tracey Ullman (Lambert). Designs are by Lez Brotherson with lighting by Oliver Fenwick and sound and music by Ben and Max Ringham.
The piece is described as follows by press notes: "How would you feel if, 15 years after you last saw them, you bumped into the one person who had the biggest influence on your life? On a dusky evening, Richard Kenton finds his primary school headmistress lying on a park bench in the shadow of St Paul's Cathedral. As he becomes reacquainted with her and the other teachers that helped shape him, memories of their vivid and imaginative lessons come to life and their tales of London inspire him once more."
