Tell Me More
Fed up with his mundane life in 1950s Northern England, Sidney Stratton is down on his luck and realises that there’s a gap in the market for a fabric that is resilient to dirt or liquid. After many botched attempts, he discovers the perfect formula to create a synthetic material that never wears out. However, things start to get complicated when the factory management and trade unions realise the impact his actions could potentially have on them. When the factory owner’s daughter appears on the scene, he must figure out who he can trust
Following its world premiere at the Theatre Royal, Bath in September 2019, “The Man in the White Suit” transfers to the Wyndham’s Theatre this autumn. With original songs by Charlie Fink and an epic set design by Michael Taylor, this comedy like no other.
