Olivier-Award winner Tamsin Greig (Episodes, Green Wing, Jumpy, God of Carnage) makes her musical theatre debut, with Olivier and Tony Award nominee Haydn Gwynne (The Audience, Billy Elliot, Silent Witness, Death in Paradise), in the UK premiere of David Yazbek and Jeffrey Lane’s new musical adaptation of Pedro Almodóvar’s Oscar-nominated film Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown at the Playhouse Theatre.

On the streets of Madrid, a city pulsing with art, industry, and passion, Pepa’s world is unravelling. Her lover leaves her. And then she meets his wife. And his son. And his new girlfriend. Meanwhile, Pepa’s best friend is tangled up in her own romantic crisis with a suspected criminal, leaving Pepa with only the taxi driver to help navigate the Gran Vía ahead.

★★★★ "It’s no wonder that Almodovar has given this exhilarating version his blessing" The Independent

★★★★ "A stylish hoot. Brilliant. Magnifico!" Daily Mail

★★★★ "Almodóvar’s edgy women will lift you up and melt your heart" The Times

★★★★ "A joyous evening: an affectionate, poignant and defiant tribute to female resilience" Financial Times

★★★★ "An absolute joy of an evening, built on heartbreak, jealousy and tongue-in-cheek verve" Daily Telegraph


Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown was Almodovar's first international hit, which he based on Jean Cocteau's The Human Voice. The eclectic Spanish director, whose other films include Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! with Antonio Banderas and Volver with Penelope Cruz, has been involved in the forthcoming musical production of his film.
