Trevor Nunn’s production of Noel Coward comedy Relative Values comes to the Harold Pinter Theatre starring Patricia Hodge, Caroline Quentin and Neil Morrissey.
Trevor Nunn’s all-star production of Noel Coward’s comedy Relative Values is now playing at the Harold Pinter Theatre for a limited season in this glittering West End revival.
This hilarious Noel Coward play centres on a clash of cultures between the glamour of 1950’s Hollywood and the stuffiness of the English aristocracy, all set in an English stately home.
An all-star cast includes Olivier Award winning actress Patricia Hodge as Felicity, stage and TV actress Caroline Quentin as Moxie and Neil Morrissey as Crestwell the butler.
There is much consternation at Marshwood House, stately home of Felicity the Countess of Marshwood, when her son Nigel, the Earl of Marshwood, decides to marry Hollywood film actress Miranda Frayle. But things go from bad to worse when Felicity’s maid Moxie reveals that she is actually the long-lost sister of Miranda. In an attempt to cope with this deeply embarrassing situation, Moxie is dressed up in her ladyship’s cast-offs as the family attempts to pass her off as one of their own…. with hilarious results!
