Women on the Verge of a Nervous BreakdownOlivier-Award winner Tamsin Greig (Episodes, Green Wing, Jumpy, God of Carnage), who made her name as Debbie Aldridge in Radio 4's The Archers, makes her musical theatre debut in the UK premiere of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. Pedro Almodovar's Oscar-nominated film has been adapted for the stage by the all-American writing team of David Yasbek and Jeffrey Lane, whose Dirty Rotten Scoundrels musical is currently playing to positive reviews in the West End - "An absolute joy of an evening", says Dominic Cavendish in the Telegraph, which "boasts a sparky performance by Tamsin Greig" (Michael Billington, The Guardian). Pepa (Tamsin Greig) and her friends juggle their everyday lives and extraordinary moments in a surprising, heart-breaking and rebellious musical comedy. The production is directed by Tony Award-winner Bartlett Sher, resident director of the Lincoln Center theatre in New York.

About Playhouse Theatre

A short step away from the main strip of West End theatres, the Playhouse's stylish curved facade is rather lost among the towering architecture of Charing Cross and Embankment. If the exterior is a little too restrained however, the same cannot be said for the auditorium, which is a sumptuous tribute to theatrical excess. More about Playhouse Theatre
