1st Night Photos: Starry Opening for MarriedDate: 28 October 2010
The all-star revival of JB Priestly's When We Are Married opened at the Garrick Theatre last night (28 October 2010, previews from 19 October) where it is booking for a limited season until 26 February 2011.
Directed by Christopher Luscombe, the cast includes Roy Hudd, Maureen Lipman, Simon Rouse and Sam Kelly amongst the three respectable couples who find out that despite getting married together in the same church on the same day 25 years ago, the vicar was never licensed and they aren't actually married.
The cast were joined on their opening night by celebrities including comedian Frank Skinner, former Cabinet Minister Cecil Parkinson and singer Diana Vickers.
