Kendal stars in 'Relatively Speaking' revival
LONDON — “Relatively Speaking,” Alan Ayckbourn’s 1965 breakthrough comedy, will be revived in the West End in spring 2013.
Produced by Theater Royal Bath Prods., the comedy of pre-marital infidelity and mistaken identity will begin previews at Cameron Mackintosh’s Wyndham’s Theater beginning May 14. The staging is led by U.K. box-office favorite Felicity Kendal, who appeared in the original 1973 West End production of Ayckbourn’s “The Norman Conquests,” the tragicomic trilogy that, in a more recent production, won the 2009 Tony for revival.
Helmed by Lindsay Posner and designed by Peter McKintosh (“The 39 Steps”) the case also includes Jonathan Coy, Kara Tointon and Max Bennett.
