Directed by artistic director Anthony Biggs, I Loved Lucy opens at the Jermyn Street Theatre on 5th February (previews from 2nd February) for a limited run to 27th February 2016.

Based on his best selling memoir, Lee Tannen’s "funny, bitter-sweet play" is said to reveal the real-life Lucy and what is was like being her friend to the end. The cast also includes Matthew Bunn (The Ladykillers/Ghost Stories) as Lee whilst design is by Gregor Donnelly.
