Playwright Patrick Marber and Leveaux are editing the drama for its three-month run. No word yet on what kind of changes -- if any -- will be made.

ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS star Chris will not be transferring with CLOSER when it heads to the Haymarket in September because of his role in KING CHARLES III, beginning at Wyndham's that month.

Carroll is set to star as Anna, a photographer who has complicated relationships with both Larry (Sewell), a doctor, and Dan (Chris), who writes obituaries.

CLOSER premiered at the National Theatre in 1997 and made its Broadway debut two years later. It won the 1998 Olivier Award for Best New Play and was nominated for the '99 Tony Award in the same category. The show has seen Clive Owen, Ciaran Hinds, Anna Friel, Natasha Richardson and more in its cast over the years and was adapted into a feature film in 2004.

Carroll appeared last year in The Duck House, which toured the UK before playing the Vaudeville in London. She has also starred in The Magistrate at the National in 2012, as well as After the Dance opposite Benedict Cumberbatch and Adrian Scarborough at the Royal National Theatre for which her performance won her the 2010 Olivier Award for Best Actress.

Sewell originated the role of 'Septimus Hodge' in Arcadia, as well as 'Jan' in Rock 'n' Roll, both by Tom Stoppard. He received Olivier and Tony nominations for his performance in Rock 'n' Roll. The actor also appeared on Broadway in Translations in 1995. He was recently seen in the new film Hercules, as well as I'll Follow You Down, The Sea and All Things to All Men. He will next appear in Gods of Egypt alongside Geoffrey Rush.

Chris last starred opposite James Corden in the National Theatre's One Man, Two Guvnors. In 2010, he appeared alongside Judi Dench in A Midsummer Night's Dream, and before that, made his West End debut in Well in 2008. He has appeared in several TV comedy series, including The Office, Green Wing, The IT Crowd and Rescue Me.
