Stephen Merchant's play closes early

Curtain comes down on The Mentalists

Stephen Merchant's West End debut is to close a month early.

The revival of The Mentalists had been planned to run at the Wyndham's Theatre for three months, ending on September 26.

But now it has been announced that the show will end on August 29.

The show, co-starring Steffan Rhodri and written by One Man, Two Guvnors creator Richard Bean, received mid-level critical reviews when it opened earlier this month. (Read Chortle's here)

The producers said in a statement: 'It has been a great joy bringing The Mentalists into the West End this summer; however, we have had to take the very difficult but prudent decision, based on a challenging post-summer period, to reduce the run to nine weeks.

'We wish to thank the cast, creative team and crew for all of their dedication, humour and hard work in creating a production which we are immensely proud of.'
