Leigh Zimmerman joins Relative Values

Published 21 February 2014

Leigh Zimmerman will join the cast of Relative Values next month for the hit comedy’s forthcoming run at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

The Olivier Award-winning actress took home one of London Theatre’s most prestigious accolades at the Olivier Awards with MasterCard last year after entertaining audiences and critics alike with her portrayal of Sheila in the revival of A Chorus Line at the London Palladium. Well known for her musical theatre roles, the actress has previously appeared in the West End in productions including Chicago and The Producers.

She will take on the role of Miranda Frayle in Noël Coward’s play about the uproarious culture clash between the glittering world of Hollywood and the stiff upper lip of the English aristocracy, which transfers to the West End from 19 March.

She joins the previously announced Patricia Hodge, Caroline Quentin, Rory Bremner and Ben Mansfield, all of whom revive their roles in the production after appearing in the comedy at the Theatre Royal Bath.

Also returning to their roles are Steven Pacey (Charley’s Aunt, Menier Chocolate Factory), Timothy Kightley (Arcadia, National Theatre), Rebecca Birch (Pygmalion, West End), Amanda Boxer and Sam Hoare.

Playing until 21 June, Relative Values charts the story of a young earl whose announcement about his future marriage to a Hollywood actress throws the household into chaos when the family discovers that the starlet’s sister is none other than the earl’s mother’s maid.

Directed by Trevor Nunn, the production will open following the limited run of Simon Callow’s one-man show Being Shakespeare, which plays from 26 February to 15 March.
