As BWW previously reported, the currently untitled piece will focus on "the sharp end of the tangled relationships between the Establishment, the Press and the police" and "will explore the fallout from the Leveson Inquiry into the culture, practice and ethics of the Press".

Crowley and Glenister are joining Billie Piper, Oliver Chris and an ensemble of actors to workshop the play with Bean and Nicholas Hytner, who is set to direct the piece at the National Theatre's Lyttelton Theatre this summer, with a West-End transfer in the wings.

Crowley has appeared onstage in the Olivier Award-winning production of The Weir, which saw runs in the UK, Ireland and the US in the '90s. In 2011, he starred in The Cripple of Inishmaan at the Kirk Douglas in Los Angeles. His TV credits include the series Father Figure, Luther, Hunted, Raw, The Bill, Bleak House and more.

Glenister's next big screen project is Cryptic. He has appeared on TV in Law & Order: UK, The Great Train Robbery mini-series, The Cafe, Hustle, Spooks, MI-5, Jane Hall, Doctor Who and many more.
