    Playbill reports that the Quantum of Solace star headlines the play alongside Tamsin Greig, Harry Lloyd and Rupert Friend.

    As earlier reported on, The Little Dog Laughed is a cautionary tale of Hollywood film actor Mitchell (Friend) who wants to come out of the closet, his agent Diane (Greig) who wants him to stay in it and the love triangle created when Mitch falls for rent boy Alex (Lloyd), who already has a girlfriend named Ellen (Arterton).

    Arterton first made her stage debut as Rosaline in the Globe’s 2007 production of Love’s Labour’s Lost.

    The Little Dog Laughed is directed by Jamie Lloyd, whose other West End credits include Three Days of Rain, Piaf and the Pinter double bill of The Lover and The Collection.
