It has been announced that The Man in the White Suit will end its run at the Wyndham's Theatre with a shorter booking period than previously advertised.

The Man in the White Suit will now play its final performance on 7th December, rather than 11th January 2020, with ticket holders for performances after 7th December advised to contact their point of sale.

Based on the 1950s Ealing Comedy starring Alec Guinness, The Man in the White Suit follows Sidney Stratton, a research chemist who discovers a new material that is damage-resistant. Making a new suit out of the fabric, his invention is shunned by everyone he meets apart from Daphne Birnley, the daughter of a local factory owner.

Stephen Mangan stars as Sidney Stratton in the production, alongside Kara Tointon as Daphne Birnley as Sue Johnston as Mrs Watson.

The Man in the White Suit received its world premiere at Theatre Royal Bath earlier this year, ahead of a London transfer which began performances from 27th September. The Man in the White Suit is adapted for stage and directed by Sean Foley, with original music by Noah and the Whale band member Charlie Fink.

In a review for, Mark Shenton praised the "large and frantically hard-working cast is led by the genial Stephen Mangan who brings considerable charm and a sweet invincibility to Stratton".

The Man in the White Suit is at Wyndham's Theatre to 7th December.

The Man in the White Suit tickets are available now.
