Maureen Lipman and Harry Shearer join Oliver Cotton in the West End transfer of his play, Daytona. Directed by David Grindley

Gripping, funny, poignant and full of mystery, Daytona is a play with not one but two love stories at its heart. Set in New York in 1986, Joe and Elli share a love of ballroom dancing and are practising their routines for the next big competition. Despite constant bickering, the love they have shared for nearly fifty years is clear. Then one night, out of the blue, Joe's long-lost brother Billy bursts back into their lives with an extraordinary story to tell.

Starring theatre legend Maureen Lipman, whose extensive credits include Oklahoma! at the National Theatre, A Little Night Music for the Menier Chocolate Factory and When We Are Married in the West End. Making his West End stage debut, Harry Shearer is known to millions as the voice of many different characters for The Simpsons, most notably as Mr Burns, Principle Skinner and Ned Flanders. They are joined by the writer of Daytona, Oliver Cotton as Billy. Cotton also has an extensive list of credits as an actor on stage, including Passion Play at the Duke of York's Theatre and A Flea in her Ear at the Old Vic.

Directed by David Grindley, don't miss this hauntingly beautiful story about moral dilemma, personal identity and the relationships that bind us all.
