After a successful 2 week run at Bath's Theatre Royal, our UK touring production truly gets underway with a visit to the beautiful Richmond Theatre in London.

Theatre Royal, Nottingham

Our tour comes to an end at the Theatre Royal in Nottingham. It's been an absolute thrill to travel the UK with the Nigel Havers Theatre Company's inaugural production of Noël Coward's "Private Lives". Until we meet again...

Nicholas Maude

Whilst I've enjoyed creating a few motorcycle review videos recently, and for my 50th treating myself to a Royal Enfield Classic 500 Tribute Black, it's time to get back to the day job!

 

I'm absolutely thrilled to be a part of this exciting new production of Noël Coward's "Private Lives". 

 

With theatres only just getting back on their feet after the pandemic, the opportunity to work again so quickly was quite unexpected. 

 

It has been such a joy being directed by Chris Liscombe and rehearsing with both Nigel Havers and Patricia Hodge in London. 

Our production opens at the Theatre Royal in Bath before embarking on a UK tour visiting Richmond, Chichester, Cambridge, Salford Quays, Torquay and many others.

 

I will be understudying the roles of Elyot and Victor and so whilst I'm not on stage, I should have plenty of time on my hands; which is why I've decided to make some videos of our tour which I shall post here.

 

I hope you enjoy them.

 

I've also decided to learn the ukulele. You can follow my progress, or lack thereof, on my Instagram page linked below.
