Relative Values at The Theatre Royal

We'll choose the £12 Standby, guaranteed tickets.

A stellar cast comes to Brighton when three of Britain’s most popular comedy performers join forces in one of Noël Coward’s most successful comedies.

Set in the early 1950s, Relative Values is about the uproarious culture clash between the glittering world of Hollywood and the stiff upper lip of the English aristocracy.

There is consternation at Marshwood House when the young Earl announces he is to marry a Hollywood film actress, but the family is well and truly flummoxed when it comes to light that the starlet’s sister is none other than Moxie, the Earl’s mother’s maid. In an attempt to cope with this deeply embarrassing situation, Moxie is dressed up in her ladyship’s cast offs as the family endeavours to pass her off as one of their own.

Olivier Award winner Patricia Hodge’s extensive stage and television work ranges from Dandy Dick to His Dark Materials, and from Rumpole of the Bailey to BBC One’s Miranda. Two time winner of the Best TV Comedy Actress Award, Caroline Quentin, has starred in shows such as Life Begins, Kiss Me Kate, Jonathan Creek and most recently Stephen Poliakoff’s Dancing on the Edge. Making his drama debut in Relative Values, Rory Bremner is one of the UK’s leading impressionists and comedians, known for Bremner, Bird and Fortune and the award winning Rory Bremner Who Else?

Tony and Olivier Award winning director Trevor Nunn is on the UK’s leading theatre, film and television directors with an extensive repertoire including Cats, Les Misérables, Summerfolk and The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby.

’Trevor Nunn’s highly enjoyable production of Noël Coward’s Relative Values is surely destined for the West End’ **** Daily Telegraph

’there’s plenty to enjoy in this beautifully designed, deftly directed comedy of manors.’The Independent

    Very enjoyable play, Noel Coward at his finest. What a cast as well. The Theatre Royal's best ever year continues apace. It was lovely to catch up with everyone afterwards as well.

      Hi Gail, it's not too late; just turn up at 7.15pm. You will then individually purchase your standbye tickets (£12). I'm sorry I can't be there myself, I would've loved to come but I have other plans. Clive will be there, along with any other attendees. You can recognise him from the photo.

      Enjoy the show and have fun. Hopefully meet you at the next theatre event. Sabiha
