Charlie Brooks & Patrick Ryecart join extended tour of Torben Betts’ Monogamy

Read our Monogamy play review from Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.

Charlie Brooks and Patrick Ryecart will play Sally and Mike in the UK tour and London run of Torben Betts’s sizzling new comedy, Monogamy, it was announced today.

They join the previously announced Janie Dee as Caroline Mortimer. The cast also includes Jack Archer, Genevieve Gaunt and Jack Sandle.

Caroline Mortimer, the nation’s favourite TV cook, has it all: a sparkling career, a big house in Highgate, a (golf) loving husband, smart kids and the best kitchen money can buy.

But beneath the immaculate furnishings and studio lighting and away from the glare of the ever-present cameras, Caroline must face the looming collision of living a private life in the public eye.

Directed by Original Theatre’s Alastair Whatley, the UK tour of Monogamy opens at the Festival Theatre in Malvern in May.

Charlie Brooks is best known for playing Janine Butcher in EastEnders on BBC1, for which she won the British Soap award for Villain of the Year (2004) and Best Exit (2005).

Stage and screen veteran, Patrick Ryecart’s most recent TV credits include playing the Duke of Norfolk in The Crown (Netflix) and Sir Hugh Bodrugan in series 1&2 of Poldark (ITV).
