Stephen Merchant to make West End debut with The Mentalists.
Stephen Merchant is set for his West End debut in Richard Bean's The Mentalists at the Wyndham's Theatre from 3 July to 26 Sep 2015, playing opposite Gavin and Stacey's Steffan Rhodri.
In a statement announcing the new production, Richard Bean said: "The central concerns of the play are even more relevant in an election year than when I wrote it. Factors like the perceived decline of social values and how this can result in the rise of fringe parties and a very personal view of politics fascinate me; but the real humour of the piece comes from Ted and Morrie's friendship, their reliance on each other and how they deal with their frustrations as working men battling against the world."
