A Chorus of Disapproval: Rob Brydon, Nigel Harman, Ashley Jensen, Teresa Banham, Daisy Beaumont, Georgia Brown, Rob Compton, Matthew Cottle, Steven Edis
Directed by Olivier and Tony award-winner Trevor Nunn.
Making his West End theatre debut, Rob Brydon stars alongside Nigel Harman (Shrek, EastEnders) and Ashley Jensen (Extras, Ugly Betty) in Alan Ayckbourn's riotous comedy.
The Pendon Amateur Light Operatic Society's production of The Beggar's Opera is going off the rails, that is until a handsome but shy young widower Guy (Harman) joins the group. An instant hit with the company’s ferociously zealous director Dafydd (Brydon) and the show’s leading ladies, including Dafydd's wife Hannah (Jensen), Guy soon gets more than he bargained for as he discovers that all the best action happens off-stage. Classic songs fill the air as the drama on stage is mirrored by the romantic rivalry and small town squabbles causing a stir in the wings of this ambitious local show.
Not seen in London since the National Theatre's hit production over 25 years ago A Chorus of Disapproval aims to steal the limelight once more in the West End this Autumn.
This Swansea-born radio and TV presenter got his big break in 2001 with a series of short comedy monologues, 'Marion And Geoff', which were shown on BBC2. This was followed by further TV appearances as Keith Barret, presenter of a spoof chat show and, perhaps most notably, Bryn West in the sitcom 'Gavin & Stacey'.
Rob's career began at Radio Wales at the age of 20 where he narrated many radio shows, adverts and animated films, as well as later appearing on television shows and films. His stand-up shows have been equally successful, with sold out shows around the UK.
His film work includes The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Cinderella and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. In 2017 in London's West End he starred opposite Sir Kenneth Branagh in The Painkiller. His other theatre credits include Future Conditional at The Old Vic and A Chorus of Disapproval at The Harold Pinter Theatre.
