Neil Morrissey will return to the West End later this month when he takes over the role of Crestwell the butler in Relative Values.

Morrissey, whose previous stage credits including Acorn Antiques, Guys and Dolls and Oliver!, takes over the role from impressionist Rory Bremner on 26 May 2014, continuing until the run finishes at the Harold Pinter Theatre on 21 June.

He joins a cast that includes his former Men Behaving Badly co-star Caroline Quentin as Moxie the maid.

Noel Coward's classic comedy centres on a culture clash between the glittering world of Hollywood and the stiff upper lip of the English aristocracy.

The cast of Trevor Nunn's revival, which originated at Bath Theatre Royal, also features Patricia Hodge as Felicity and Leigh Zimmerman as Miranda Frayle.
