Marion and Geoff for West End

Rob Brydon is to appear in a West End spin-off from the BBC2 comedy Marion and Geoff.

He will appear on stage as the character of Keith Barret, a mild-mannered thirty-something minicab driver who exposes the turmoil of his life through a series of bitter-sweet monologues in the London shows.

The shows take place at the New Ambassadors Theatre for four consecutive Sundays from October 27.

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
