When Sidney Stratton (Stephen Mangan), 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 (Kara Tointon) the mill owner’s daughter, shows Sidney any support as the bosses and workers chase the Man in the White Suit determined to destroy them both.

Kara Tointon will play Daphne Birnley in the production. Tointon recently played Olivia in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Twelfth Night, Eliza in Pygmalion at the Garrick Theatre, and Evelyn in Absent Friends at the Harold Pinter Theatre.  

Sue Johnston is best know for her performances in The Royle Family, Brookside and Coronation Street.
