Jonathan Church's 50th anniversary production of Arthur Miller's The Price is set to open in the West End, starring David Suchet and Brendan Coyle.

The play, which ran in Bath earlier this summer, is about two brothers, Victor and Walter Franz who meet for the first time in almost two decades to sell off some family furniture. One is a New York cop approaching his retirement while another is a successful surgeon, and both come to realise the true cost of decisions they have made in decades gone by.

The Price will run at the Wyndham's Theatre in London from 5th February 2019 to 27th April, with an official opening night on 11th February.

Having originally run at the Theatre Royal Bath earlier in the summer David Suchet, Brendan Coyle, Adrian Lukis and Sara Stewart will all reprise their roles from the production.

David Suchet, who is currently appearing in Jamie Lloyd's Pinter at the Pinter season, is probably best-known for playing Hercule Poirot in the TV series of Agatha Christie's mystery series. His stage credits include Long Day's Journey Into Night at the Apollo Theatre, and Amadeus in the West End and Broadway, and will celebrate 50 years in theatre next February.

Brendan Coyle has recently appeared on stage in St Nicholas for the Donmar Warehouse, and the original production of Conor McPherson's The Weir in the West End and on Broadway. His screen credits include playing John Bates in Downton Abbey.

Adrian Lukis' stage credits incude The Seagull for the National Theatre and Versailles at the Donmar, while Sara Stewart has appeared in The Cherry Orchard (Nottingham Playhouse) and Collective Rage: A Play in Five Betties (Southwark Playhouse).

The production will have designs by Simon Higlett, lighting design by Paul Pyant, sound design by Mike Walker, with compositions by Matthew Scott.

The Price is at Wyndham's Theatre from 5th February 2019 to 27th April.

The Price tickets are available now.
