Inbetweeners star Joe Thomas joins the cast of an internationally acclaimed comedy on tour this autumn.
It is adapted and directed by Jeremy Sams from the award-winning French film and play Le Prènom by Matthew Delaporte and Alexandre de La Patellière.
Joe Thomas joins James Lance (Jeeves and Wooster, Northern Soul), Summer Strallen (Top Hat, Young Frankenstein) and Alex Gaumond (Company, Dirty Rotten Scoundrel, Matilda).
The witty, razor-sharp play sees father-to-be Vincent and his partner Anna who are invited to dinner by his sister Elizabeth and her husband, Peter.
They are joined by childhood friend Carl for what should be a mature and sophisticated gathering.
The meal is lovingly prepared, and wine carefully selected. The friends are prepared for the usual humorous exchanges they’ve come to expect but a startling revelation about the name chosen for Vincent and Anna’s expected child becomes the catalyst for a destructive argument which spirals hysterically out of control.
Egos, childish resentment and name shaming abound.
A murder investigation has been launched by Thames Valley Police’s Major Crime Unit following an incident in Bourne End.
