The Menier Chocolate Factory has announced the directors and productions for its new season of main house shows that runs from May 2012 to February 2013.

Tony and Olivier-winning actor Douglas Hodge will direct Harvey Fierstein's Torch Song Trilogy (May 30-August 12). In it, drag queen Arnold encounters passion, thrills, love and loss.

Ian Talbot will helm Brandon Thomas' Charley's Aunt (September 20-November 10), wherein Charley concocts an elaborate, cross-dressing scheme so that he and cohort Jack can be seen to have a proper chaperone in the presence of their true loves.

Olivier award-winning actress Maria Friedman will make her directorial debut with Stephen Sondheim/George Furth musical Merrily We Roll Along (November 16- February 23). The musical charts the relationship of three friends over three decades in the entertainment business.
