Trevor Nunn's Relative Values at the Harold Pinter Theatre welcomes Neil Morrissey to its cast. The Men Behaving Badly actor, will take over the role of Rory Bremner as Crestwell starting Monday 26 May to Saturday 21 June 2014.
Morrissey is best remembered by audiences in his key roles in Paradise Heights, Murder in Mind, Carrie and Barry, Waterloo Road and Me & Mrs Jones. He's also recently played Nigel Morton in the BBC 2 series, Line Of Duty and was recently seen in Over To Bill on BBC 1, part of the return of the BBC’s Comedy Playhouse strand.
West End audiences will be familiar with his roles in Victoria Wood’s Acorn Antiques where he shares the stage with Julie Walters, Celia Imrie and Duncan Preston. He's also played Nathan in Guys and Dolls and played Fagin in Cameron Mackintosh’s National tour of Oliver.
In Relative Values, Neil Morrissey reunites with his former Men Behaving Badly co-star, Caroline Quentin who plays Moxie, the senior maid.
“I can’t wait to look across the stage in the first scene and see my old friend. He’s comedically the most creative actor I’ve ever worked with. Neil is a really gifted physical comedian,” says Quentin.
Relative Values marks the first time the two actors will be working together again after 16 years.
The two will be joined on stage by Patricia Hodge as Felicity and Leigh Zimmerman as Miranda Frayle.
