Tamsin Greig stars in Labour of Love at the Noel Coward Theatre.
Tamsin will star opposite Martin Freeman in the world premiere of James Graham’s razor sharp political comedy about the Labour party.
Set in the party’s traditional northern heartlands where the clash and divide between party philosophy, class and culture couldn’t be more divided, Tamsin plays Martin Freeman’s constituency agent Jean Whittaker.
Tamsin is an Olivier Award winning actress best known for her television roles in Episodes, Green Wing and Love Soup.
She won both an Olivier and The Critics Choice for Best Shakespearean Performance for Beatrice in the RSC’s production of Much Ado about Nothing and was Olivier nominated for her performance in the musical of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.
Tamsin was most recently on stage playing Malvolia in Simon Godwin’s acclaimed production of Twelfth Night at the National Theatre.
Her other theatre credits include Jumpy (Royal Court/Duke of York’s), William Boyd (Hampstead Theatre), The Little Dog Laughed for which she received an Olivier nomination, David Hare’s Gethsemane for The National Theatre, God of Carnage, opposite Ralph Fiennes at The Gielgud.
