The cast will include Edward Bennett and Flora Montgomery, both reprising their original Ustinov Studio roles as Leo Irving and Sabrina Daldry, respectively, with Sarah Woodward as Annie. Further casting is still to be announced.

The play is set in late 19th-century New York State, at a time of great innovation and social change. In the play, Dr. Givings has been working on his own strange electrical device. His aim is to treat female hysteria, but his first patient emerges from her first session glowing and keen to return.  

It is being produced at the St. James Theatre by Peter Huntley in association with Theatre Royal Bath Productions.
