Hero's Welcome will run in repertory from 4 September - 3 October and will be directed by the playwright.
The play is described as: "Seventeen years ago Murray fled the neighbourhood under somewhat of a cloud and certain folk have long memories, not least Alice, the mayor, whom he left standing at the altar. Indeed few of his friends, once the welcome flags have stopped waving and the town band has ceased playing, seem particularly happy to see him back. Murray’s declared intention of settling down with his new bride threatens to stir up all sorts of old rivalries and resentments."
It is described by the theatre as: "From a devoted and isolated mother, to her unfaithful travelling salesman husband, through to a solicitous waiter to well-heeled diners and an utterly shambolic garden fete, human frailty is laid bare as one hilarious situation unfolds after another."
The press night will take place on 14 July marking the date in 1955 when Stephen Joseph opened the Library Theatre in Scarborough. There will be a number of events taking place on and around the 14 July to mark the celebration.
The theatre has also announced the other plays and dates for the season which will include revivals of Stephen Mallatratt's famed adaptation of Susan Hill's ghost story The Woman In Black, which originated at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round in 1987 (performances 19 June - 2 August). It will be directed by Robin Herford, who directed the original production and subsequently the West End production.
Tim Firth's breath out play Neville's Island will be performed from August and will be directed by Henry Bell. The play premiered at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round in 1992, before going on to the West End and television.
The season will also include a revival of Arrthur Sullivan's comic opera Cox & Box - Mrs Bouncer's Legacy with a second act by Chris Monks and Richard Atkinson; this was first seen at the SJT last year.
