Hugh Dennis, John Marquez & Leslie Garrett will star in a new comedy The Messiah at London’s The Other Palace Theatre this Christmas.

The trio will play a cast of thousands in the funniest and most magical nativity you’ll ever see. The Messiah is written and directed by Patrick Barlow – the genius behind the Olivier Award-winning West End hit The 39 Steps and most recently A Christmas Carol starring Jim Broadbent.

Award winning actor/writer Hugh Dennis (Out Numbered, Mock The Week) makes a return to the stage for the first time in over 20 years, whilst renowned Soprano Lesley Garrett makes her comedy play debut.

John Marquez is best known for his role as PC Joe Penhale in the hit ITV Comedy series, Doc Martin. His numerous tv roles include Porridge, In the Club, Death in Paradise, Hotel Babylon and Suburban Shootout. Recent theatre roles include Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (The Savoy Theatre) and Once in a Lifetime (The Young Vic).

The Messiah opens on 15 October 2018 at Birmingham Repertory Theatre, followed by dates in Cardiff, Sheffield, Cheltenham, Chichester, and Richmond Theatre ahead of its London engagement.
