The Lyons is a new Broadway transfer coming to the Menier Chocolate Factory this autumn.
The Lyons have gathered around the hospital bed of their dying father Ben. But surface compassion soon gives way to bickering, sniping and betraying each other's secrets. This exploration of a fractured family is at once savagely funny and heart-breaking.
Tom Ellis plays Ben's son, Curtis Lyons. Best known for his TV roles as Gary in Miranda and in The Secret of Crickley Hall, Tom’s theatre credits include One Minute (Crucible Sheffield and Bush) and Shang-A-Lang (Chichester).
He's joined by Charlotte Randle (as Ben's daughter Lisa Lyons); Katy Secombe as the Nurse and Ben Aldridge as Brian.
The Lyons first ran off-Broadway in 2011 and then transferred to Broadway in 2012. The play was nominated for the Drama League Award for Distinguished Production of a Play and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Play.
