Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown extends its booking period at the Playhouse Theatre to 22nd August 2015.
The production opened on 12th January 2015, following previews from 18th December 2014, and was due to run to 9th May 2015 (ticket booking links will be updated accordingly).
Cast members Tamsin Greig and Hadyn Gwynne have been nominated for Olivier Awards for Best Actress in a Musical and Best Supporting actress in a Musical respectively.
When TV actress Pepa’s boyfriend leaves her in unexplained circumstances she confronts his wife and son in a scramble to find out where he’s gone and why, but they’re just as clueless as she is.
At the same time, Pepa’s girlfriend is worried that the police are after her because of her own boyfriend’s criminal activities, so she and Pepa consult a female lawyer – who just happens to be Pepa’s boyfriend’s new lover. It’s a delirious tangle of criss-crossing relationships from here on in.
Olivier-Award winner Tamsin Greig (Episodes, Green Wing, Jumpy, God of Carnage) makes her musical theatre debut as Pepa in the UK premiere of David Yazbek and Jeffrey Lane’s new musical adaptation of Pedro Almodovar’s Oscar-nominated film Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.
