A first look at new play Tom, Dick and Harry at New Vic Theatre and Alexandra Palace Theatre has been revealed.

The show is based on top-secret information from the war archives classified until 1972, telling an extraordinary true story of an escape from a Luftwaffe-run prisoner-of-war camp.

Written by Andrew Pollard, Michael Hugo, and Theresa Heskins, the production is directed by Theresa Heskins with set design by Laura Willstead, costume design by Lis Evans, lighting design by Daniella Beatie and sound design by Alex Day.

From the team behind the smash-hit Around The World In 80 Days, directed by Theresa Heskins (Olivier Award-winning The Worst Witch) and co-produced by the New Vic Theatre and Kenny Wax Productions (The Play That Goes Wrong, Six The Musical), Tom, Dick & Harry is filled with dynamic drama, humour, and breath-taking theatricality, telling an extraordinary true story of the escape from Stalag Luft III, of solidarity across nations, and of an unbreakable spirit to achieve the impossible.
