The West End production of Richard Bean’s comic two-hander The Mentalists starring Stephen Merchant and Steffan Rhodri is now on sale.
Directed by Abbey Wright, The Mentalists play a strictly limited season at the Wyndham’s Theatre from 3 July 2015 to 26 September 2015.
The Mentalists marks Stephen Merchant’s theatrical and West End debut, with Steffan Rhodri returning to the West End for the first time since Laura Wade’s Posh and Alan Ayckborn’s Absent Friends, both in 2012. Merchant said it was a chance to do some “Proper Acting”.
Holed up in a faceless Finsbury Park hotel room Ted (Stephen Merchant), and Morrie (Steffan Rhodri) are forced to confront the darker side of their unique relationship. Things unravel as the pressure mounts in this hilarious and touching tale of friendship and utopian visions gone awry.
