The production is designed by Bunny Christie, with lighting by Paule Constable, video design by Finn Ross, movement by Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly, music by Adrian Sutton and sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph.

The original production opened at the Cottesloe Theatre at the National Theatre in 2012, before transferring to the West End's Apollo Theatre, where it played until 19 December 2013, when it was forced to close following the collapse of part of the Apollo Theatre ceiling. The production won seven Olivier Awards, including the award for Best New Play.
