Neil Morrissey will reunite with his Men Behaving Badly co-star Caroline Quentin when he joins the cast of Relative Values at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Morrissey joins the cast from Monday 26th May until Saturday 21st June, taking over from Rory Bremner as Crestwell whose 10 week run ends on Saturday 24th May.
Morrissey is often described as one of the country's most popular television and stage actors. As well as playing Tony Smart opposite Quentin and Martin Clunes in Men Behaving Badly, he has starred in Paradise Heights, Murder in Mind, Carrie and Barry, Waterloo Road and Me & Mrs Jones.
On stage Morrissey was seen in the West End production of Victoria Wood's Acorn Antiques. He also played Nathan in Guys And Dolls and Fagin in Cameron Mackintosh's national touring production of Oliver.
Set in the early 1950's, Relative Values is about the uproarious culture clash between the glittering world of Hollywood and the stiff upper lip of the English aristocracy. The cast also features Miranda star Patricia Hodge as Felicity and Broadway actress Leigh Zimmerman as Miranda Frayle alongside Quentin as Moxie.
Noel Coward’s hilarious play is directed by Trevor Nunn.The production ran at the Theatre Royal Bath before transferring to the West End.
