Show Information


Based on the Sunday Times bestseller which inspired one of this century’s most treasured films, The
Best Exotic Marigold Hotel takes us on a journey to India with an eclectic group of British retirees as
they embark on a new life. The luxury residence is far from the opulence they were promised, but as
their lives begin to intertwine, they are charmed in unexpected and life-changing ways.

Starring Belinda Lang (2 Point 4 Children, Oklahoma!), Paul Nicholas (Jesus
Christ Superstar, Just Good Friends, Eastenders), Tessa Peake-Jones (Only Fools and Horses) and Graham Seed (The Archers, The Mousetrap).

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a joyous comedy about taking risks, finding love and embracing second
chances, even in the most surprising of places.

Get ready for the journey of a lifetime.

Major UK Tour. Prior to West End.

'I'm so thrilled that my characters are stepping into a new life on the stage. They've been waiting
impatiently for the curtain to rise, and none of them is getting any younger. So welcome again to the
Marigold Hotel! We've assembled an amazing cast, so I hope they bring you plenty of laughs, and some
warm sparks of recognition.'
Deborah Moggach
