Bill Kenwright presents KRIS MARSHALL , BILLIE PIPER, LAURENCE FOX in TREATS by CHRISTOPHER HAMPTON
Directed by LAURENCE BOSWELL. Designed by JEREMY HERBERT. Lighting Design by MARK HENDERSON. Sound Design by IAN HORROCKS-TAYLOR.
In Christopher Hampton's sharply observed, darkly funny drama of interchanging relationships, Ann (Billie Piper) replaces her egotistical boyfriend (Kris Marshall) with the more 'conventional' Patrick (Laurence Fox), only to find that she can't make up her mind as to what (or who) she really wants...
Billie Piper, much loved for her role as Rose Tyler in Doctor Who, stars in what will be her West End debut following just four touring dates. Billie first shot to fame at the age of fifteen as a teenage pop star; she enjoyed two number one singles and several other hits before turning to acting. Since making the transition, she has won numerous awards (including, for two consecutive years, the National Television Award for Most Popular Actress), starred alongside some of the biggest names in television, and won tremendous critical acclaim for her performances in the BBC’s The Canterbury Tales, and more recently, Ruby In The Smoke. Billie is shortly to be seen starring in the hugely anticipated new TV adaptation of Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park.
Joining Billie are TV favourites Kris Marshall and Laurence Fox: Kris is well known for playing bumbling son Nick (alongside Robert Lindsay and Zoe Wanamaker) in six hit series of the BBC drama My Family. Kris also starred alongside Amanda Donohoe in Murder City and appeared in The Merchant Of Venice with Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons. Laurence is perhaps best known to TV audiences as Kevin Whatley’s sidekick in Lewis. He has just finished filming Shekar Kapur's Golden Age with Cate Blanchett and starred in the feature film The Hole opposite Keira Knightley and in Robert Altman’s Gosford Park.
