RELATIVE VALUES - Theatre Royal, Bath
Wednesday 12 June – Saturday 29 June Directed by Trevor Nunn
The Theatre Royal Bath Summer Season 2013 offers a season of new in-house productions including Noel Coward’s Relative Values, directed by Trevor Nunn and starring Patricia Hodge, Caroline Quentin and Rory Bremner.
A stellar cast launches the Summer Season 2013 in one of Noel Coward’s most successful comedies, including Patricia Hodge as Felicity, Caroline Quentin as Moxie and Rory Bremner as Crestwell, the butler. Set in the early 1950’s, Relative Values is about the uproarious culture clash between the glittering world of Hollywood and the stiff upper lip of the English aristocracy.

Sings Noël Coward
"If you've heard Christine Ebersole sing, you know her lovely, crystal-clear voice alone is enough of a reason to get this CD. But, what I really love about this one is that her brilliant acting comes through and makes it just a delight. She interprets the songs and it translates--you can hear her smile; feel the heartbreak... It's really special." Web
