Abi Titmuss joins cast of Fat Christ

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 18 April 2008

Abi Titmuss is to take her second London theatre role in the new comedy Fat Christ, opening at the King’s Head theatre on Tuesday 28 February.

Written by Gavin Davis, the play revolves around Jack Taylor and his desperation to find his big break in life. After previous attempts have left him and his pregnant wife with next to nothing, Jack finds himself working as a window cleaner to make ends meet. When the opportunity to take part in an insanely ambitious scheme with a top London art dealer arises, Jack takes the chance of a better life for his family and crucifies himself to his ambitions.

Titmuss is perhaps better known as a tabloid favourite than an actress, but during her years working as a nurse, she studied acting at the Central School of Speech and Drama. After TV appearances and a job presenting for Richard And Judy, Titmuss built up her public profile and left nursing for a full time career in show business. In March 2006, Titmuss made her London stage acting debut starring alongside Jay Benedict in the Arthur Miller play Two Way Mirror at the Courtyard theatre. She was awarded Best West End Debut by the Fringe Report for her role.

Alongside Titmuss, Fat Christ stars Tim Downie, Jennifer Matter and Jack Taylor.

Downie’s previous credits include the role of Bobby Moore in BAC’s production of The 1966 World Cup and Alex in Glory Days at the Croydon Warehouse.

Matter played Maid Marion in Robin Hood with the Creation Theatre Company and also appeared in the 2005 film Notes On A Scandal, while Taylor’s previous roles include Sir Toby Belch in Twelfth Night, Oberon in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Gerald in An Inspector Calls.

Fat Christ opens at the King’s Head Theatre on 28 February, following previews from 26 February, and runs to 23 March.
