Relative Values Tickets

Patricia Hodge, Caroline Quentin and Rory Bremner star in a glittering revival of Noel Coward’s classic comedy Relative Values. Directed by the legendary Trevor Nunn, Relative Values is the hilarious commentary about 1950’s Hollywood culture clashing wildly with the English stiff upper lip! Guaranteed to have you in stitched, Relative Values is definitely not one to miss!

Following a hugely successful 2013 run at the Theatre Royal Bath, three of the UK’s top comedy performers unite in Trevor Nunn’s acclaimed revival of Relative Values, opening at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre. A classic Noel Coward comedy, Relative Values is a humorous take on the controversial subject of class relations, as Hollywood culture and English aristocracy collide, with disastrous consequences.

A 1950’s comedy from the legendary Noel Coward, Relative Values is a societal commentary of cross cultures clashing in the most hilarious of ways. At the stiff upper-lipped Marshwood House, there is concern when the young Earl Nigel announces that he will marry a Hollywood film actress. But the family are truly flummoxed when it is revealed that the young starlet’s sister is Moxie, the Earl’s mother’s lowly maid! Deciding to take matters into her own hands, the Countess decides that she must devise a way to stop the marriage to someone of such an undesirable class.

Olivier Award-winning actress Patricia Hodge (Miranda) stars as Felicity, alongside Caroline Quentin (Life of Riley) as Moxie and Rory Bremner as Crestwell. From May 24th, Neil Morrissey (Men Behaving Badly) will take over the role of Crestwell. Further cast members include Ben Mansfield, Leigh Zimmerman, Steven Pacey, Timothy Kightley, Rebecca Birch, Amanda Boxer and Sam Hoare.

Directed by the prolific Trevor Nunn (Cats, Les Miserables, Sunset Boulevard), this acclaimed production of Relative Values features design by Stephen Brimson-Lewis, lighting design by Tim Mitchell and sound design by Fergus O’Hare. An uproarious comedy about class, clashes and two cultures colliding, Relative Values promises to be wildly entertaining, featuring a cast of comic greats! Opening at the Harold Pinter Theatre, the play runs for a limited season until June 21st.
