Members Only

Robert Bathurst and Nicolas Tennant will star in the British première of Members Only at Trafalgar Studios from 28 March 2006. Running for just 30 performances Members Only has been translated by Christopher Campbell from Fabrice Roger-Lacan’s Cravate Club, which enjoyed great success on stage and screen in France. This production will be directed by Marianne Badrichani and designed by Vicki Fifield.

Robert Bathurst was last seen on stage alongside Kristin Scott-Thomas in Three Sisters and, in tandem with success on popular TV dramas and comedies such as Cold Feet and My Dad’s the Prime Minister, has maintained a regular presence on the West End stage in productions of Michael Frayn’s Alarms & Excursions and Noises Off. In March he will be seen on ITV in Poirot (After the Funeral) and later in the year he will play Mark Thatcher in Coup!, John Fortune’s play for BBC 2.

Nicolas Tennant is a regular member of the NT Company, most recently seen as Sammy in The UN Inspector, and previously at Hampstead and in the West End in Little Malcolm. He played the title role in Dr. Faustus at Liverpool Playhouse in 05/06 and performed with the RSC in the 2003 productions of The Taming of the Shrew and The Tamer Tamed.  

Adrien and Bernard are lifelong friends and business partners. It’s Bernard’s fortieth birthday. But Adrien can’t come – it’s the monthly dinner at his club.

We went, we saw, we liked

In this small theatre, you feel as though you are intruding in these two men’s private lives. The play works perfectly well in this restricted environment.
Bernard (Robert Bathurst) , who seems like a normal guy in the first few scenes, he his a good husband and father who very quickly appears to be self-centred and rather barking mad. Adrien (Nicolas Tennant) has a life outside work and he cannot tolerate being kept out of it. This play will be most likely to make you think about your personal hang ups/issues and what you expect of your friends/relatives/business partners at times.
Both actors are excellent and the adaptation from the French version very well put together. Even the French musical clips are there to remind you that it all takes place in France.

Feel free to book, you will not be disappointed.
