Mackenzie Crook and Nancy Carroll to star in The Recruiting Officer

The casting for The Recruiting Officer has been announced, with Mackenzie Crook and Nancy Carroll both starring in the production.

They will be joined by Mark Gatiss, Gawn Grainger, Tobias Menzies and Rachel Stirling when the show opens at the Donmar Warehouse in front of those booking London theatre breaks on Tuesday February 14th, following previews from Thursday February 9th.

Crook has proved to be a revelation in the West End since originally making his name in The Office. He starred in Jerusalem at the Royal Court, while he has also appeared in The Seagull and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Carroll has a host of London theatre credits, such as House of Games, Waste and Twelfth Night.

The Recruiting Officer is written by George Farquhar and tells the story of Captain Plume, who is picking his squad for the King's army. He also has his eye on heiress Sylvia, although matters are complicated by the scheming Melinda and her desire for Captain Brazen and Mr Worthy.

Currently, the Donmar is preparing to welcome Richard II, which runs from Thursday December 1st to Saturday February 4th.
