‘The Inbetweeners’ Joe Thomas will star in the first UK tour of comic play ‘What’s In A Name?

The internationally acclaimed comedy hilariously captures a family dinner party which spirals out of control when young couple, Vincent (Joe Thomas) and Anna reveal the name of their expected child.

The cast will also feature James Lance (Jeeves and Wooster, Northern Soul), Summer Strallen (Top Hat, Young Frankenstein) and Alex Gaumond (Company, Dirty Rotten Scoundrel, Matilda).

The comedy is adapted and directed by Jeremy Sams from the award-winning French film and stage sensation, Le Prènom, by Matthew Delaporte and Alexandre de La Patellière.

The original play premiered in 2010 at the Théâtre Édouard VII in Paris, France, where the production received six Molière Award nominations and ran for over 300 performances. This production previously played to critical acclaim at Birmingham REP in 2017.

The creative team includes set design by Francis O’Connor and lighting design by Rick Fisher.

What’s In A Name? will open at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, from 5-14 September 2019, before visiting Glasgow, York, Aylesbury, Cambridge, Windsor, Richmond and Southampton.
