The LyonsTom Ellis (who plays love interest Gary in BBC comedy Miranda) plays Curtis Lyons in The Lyons which comes to the Menier Chocolate Factory this September, helmed by the play's original New York director, Mark Brokaw. Ellis stars alongside Katy Secombe, Charlotte Randall and Ben Aldridge in this dark comedy written by Nicky Silver. The drama centres on the Lyons family, who have gathered around the hospital bed of their dying father, Ben. But soon sadness and compassion give way to familial bickering and the betrayal of secrets. The Lyons first ran off-Broadway in 2011 and then transferred to Broadway the following year when the New York Times critic gave it a glowing review, describing it as "directed with a pulsing comic rhythm".

 

About Menier Chocolate Factory

Housed in a former chocolate factory, this innovative theatre has rapidly established itself as one of London's best. Since opening in 2004, it has had half-a-dozen West End transfers, most of them slick revivals of recent plays and musicals, including Merrily We Roll Along, A Little Night Music, Sunday in the Park With George, Dealer's Choice, and Little Shop of Horrors.
