See Relatively Speaking during a trip to London

No trip to London is complete without taking in a live show in the city’s famous West End.

You will come across some of the world’s very finest theatre venues in London and you will not have to look very hard to find a wonderful musical or play to keep you entertained.

Wyndham’s Theatre is one of many excellent places to visit in the English capital and it is expected to get very busy this summer, as a remake of popular classic Relatively Speaking is set to take up residency at the Charing Cross Road venue.

The comedy was first brought to the West End by Oliver and Tony Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn in 1967, following a successful stint at The Library Theatre in Scarborough.

A romantic-comedy, the play follows the tale of Greg and Ginny, who are the main characters in a complex love story that is shrouded in uncertainty.

The new-look version of the stage show will feature some household names from the UK’s acting fraternity.

National treasure Felicity Kendal is part of the cast and this will be the first time she has performed in an Alan Ayckbourn play since her role in The Norman Conquests in 1973. She shot to fame in the 1970s, when she played the lovable Barbara Good in the cult classic sitcom The Good Life.

She will be joined onstage by Jonathan Coy – of Downton Abbey and Foyle’s War fame – ex-Eastenders actress Kara Tointon and film star Max Bennett.

The play will run from May 14th until August 31st and is definitely worth seeing if you happen to be in London.

Getting to the venue really could not be easier, as it is right next to the Leicester Square Underground station and is also accessible by bus.

Having first opened in 1899, Wyndham’s Theatre has a rich heritage and you cannot help but think of the history of the place – and the plethora of wonderful shows that have been staged there over the years – as you walk in the main entrance.
