Katherine Parkinson is set to star in EV Crowe's new play Shoe Lady at the Royal Court in March, in artistic director Vicky Featherstone's production.

Crowe has previously written The Sewing Group, Hero and Kin at the Royal Court, and her latest play is about a woman called Viv who is feeling overwhelmed, but believes everything will be okay when she finds her missing work shoe.

Parkinson plays Viv, her first stage appearance since her Olivier Award-nominated performance in Home, I'm Darling. Her other stage roles include Dead Funny, at the Vaudeville Theatre, and has just been announced to star in a stage adaptation of The Good Life at Theatre Royal Bath.

She will be joined by Kayla Meikle, who will play Elaine. She has previously performed at the Royal Court in ear for eye and Primetime, and has been seen at The Old Vic in All My Sons, and at the Almeida in Vassa and Dance Nation.

In addition to her work at the Royal Court, Crowe's plays include Brenda at the Yard Theatre, I Can Hear You at the RSC, and Liar Liar at the Unicorn.

Featherstone's creative team will feature set design by Chloe Lamford, lighting design by Natasha Chivers, composition by Matthew Herbert, sound design by Tony Gayle and movement direction by Sasha Milavic Davies.

Shoe Lady will run at the Royal Court from 4th to 21st March.
