The West End stage premiere of the classic Ealing comedy The Man in the White Suit in London starring Stephen Mangan and Kara Tointon
When Sidney Stratton invents a fabric that never gets dirty and never wears out, manufacturers and trades unions are terrified by the threat it poses to their industry and their jobs. Only Daphne, the mill owner's daughter, shows Sidney any support as his world gradually falls apart before he finds love.
The cast features Stephen Mangan as 'Sidney Stratton' (excluding 23 to 28 December 2019), Kara Tointon as 'Daphne', and Sue Johnston as 'Mrs Watson' (up to 23 November 2019 only). Directed by Sean Foley with designs by Michael Taylor. Adapted by Sean Foley from the 1951 'Ealing Comedy' movie written by Roger MacDougall, John Dighton and Alexander Mackendrick, and starring Alec Guinness as 'Sidney Stratton' and Joan Greenwood as 'Daphne'.
