Bean and Coleman don’t put a foot wrong. Briskly plotted, dizzily paced with doors flying shut and open with split-second timing, revealing and concealing the players with all the aplomb of a delicious Deuxieme Empire farce, Young Marx is a racy, gallivanting romp, making the earnest lead a figure of fun.
BritishTheatre.com is pleased to bring you these great images from rehearsals of The Mentalists starring Stephen Merchant and Steffan Rhodri. Written by Richard Bean of One Man, Two Guvnors fame, The Mentalists is the story of Ted (Stephen Merchant) who has a master plan to revolutionise the world – and with help from his best friend Morrie (Steffan Rhodri) and his video camera, it may just go global! But Morrie begins to suspect that Ted’s in trouble as unpaid bills and cryptic phone calls start to mount; and as the world closes in, there is only one way out, in this hilarious, sharply written and touching comedy. The Mentalists is directed by Abbey Wright with scenic design by Richard Kent. BOOK TICKETS TO THE MENTALISTS AT LONDON’S WYNDHAMS THEATRE
