Star Kenny Doughty wrote on Facebook that he was "devastated and heartbroken" after hearing of the news.

He said: "Yesterday, on the day we had two full houses and two standing ovations, in the week our play got an Olivier nomination, we were given the shocking news that the play is being pulled.

"I am utterly devastated not only for myself but for every single soul that has given their all for this play. We deserved better."

Simon Beaufoy adapted his own Oscar-nominated script for the stage, »
