Producer Ollie Hancock said, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be announcing such an exceptional supporting cast for the London premiere of Flowers for Mrs Harris.

“The cast of 12 play 25 characters between them, so casting the show was a very labour-intensive process, but one of absolute joy to be a part of. I’m very much looking forward to charming and moving London audiences for the first time with this gorgeously uplifting British musical.”

Jenna Russell said, “Ada Harris is a dream role in an exceptional piece by Rachel Wagstaff and Richard Taylor. I’m thrilled to be part of this amazing team, bringing “Flowers For Mrs Harris” to the Riverside Studios. Reading the play had a profound effect on me, and I can’t wait to see how that translates to a live experience, for the actors and audience alike.”

The running time is around 2 hours and 40 minutes including an interval, and tickets start from £25.

There are showings Tuesday to Saturday at 7.30pm, Wednesday and Saturday 2.30pm and Sunday 3pm.
