Los Angeles: British actor Rowan Atkinson is all set to make a comeback on stage after his hospitalisation from a car crash last year.

The `Mr Bean` star, 57, smashed his McLaren F1 sports car into a tree, suffering an injured shoulder and some very expensive coach work, reported Aceshowbiz.

Atkinson is set to star in the title role of a new West End production of Simon Gray`s 1981 play `Quartermaine`s Terms`, appearing as a teacher.

The production, `Quartermaine`s Terms` is the story of seven teachers at a Cambridge school that teaches English to foreign students.

Atkinson will be performing on stage after three years, he last performed in `West End musical Oliver` in 2009.
