Rose Trelawny is the brightest star in the firmament of the Wells, the theatre company that raised her from birth. But she's prepared to give it all up for the love of her stage-door suitor, aristocratic Arthur. His family are less convinced of her charms, however, and her joyful challenge to their dreary, snobby existence shocks them to their core.
Daniel Mays has previously appeared at the Donmar in Moonlight. He has performed in seven productions at the Royal Court including their forthcoming production Hero. He is well known for his roles in films including Made in Dagenham, Tin Tin, Red Riding 1975 & 1983, Shifty, Atonement and Vera Drake.
