The National Theatre production of Alan Bennett's latest play, People, will open at the Marlowe Theatre this Autumn.
Theatre Director Mark Everett said: “We are delighted to see the latest work by the country’s leading playwright in Canterbury and proud the National has chosen the new Marlowe as one of a small number of venues for the tour. This is a real coup for us.”
