Katherine Moar's Farm Hall will transfer to Theatre Royal Haymarket this August for a limited run. Farm Hall is Moar's first play, and it became the best-selling show in the history of Jermyn Street Theatre when it opened in spring 2023.

Directed by Stephen Unwin, the play tells the story of six of Germany’s leading nuclear scientists, who are detained at a country estate by Allied forces during the Second World War.

The ensemble cast includes David Yelland (The Crown, Chariots of Fire, Poirot) as Max Von Laue, Alan Cox (Say My Name, Mrs Dalloway, Housewife, 49) as Werner Heisenberg, Daniel Boyd (On Chesil Beach, Tiger House) as Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker, Forbes Masson (EastEnders, Catastrophe) as Otto Hahn, Julius D’Silva (The Crown, The Ten Commandments) as Kurt Diebner, and Archie Backhouse as Erich Bagge (associate artist with Complicité).

The rest of the creative team includes direction by Stephen Unwin, design by Ceci Calf, lighting by Ben Ormerod, and sound by John Leonard.
