Tamzin Outhwaite stars in Ben Ockrent’s play Breeders at the St James Theatre. The production also features Nicholas Burns and Jemima Rooper whilst Tamara Harvey, well known for a range of shows in the West End, directs. It is a story about family and the lengths one couple with go to in order to have a baby, which could lead to a very awkward conversation around the dinner table.

Andrea (Outhwaite) and she and her wife Caroline are satisfied with their lot in life, apart from the baby shaped hole. But they have a plan. Seeing as they can’t have a baby on their own, and even then it won’t share both of their genes, they think that perhaps Andrea’s brother Jimmy (Burns) could help. But this could either be a way of solving all of their problems or it could be catastrophe.

It is a comedy that tackles parenthood and the family and, judging by previous successes of the creative team, it is certainly something that London theatre audiences will want to keep a close eye on.

Tamara Harvey recently directed From Here To Eternity at the Shaftesbury Theatre and her other credits include Plague Over England at the Duchess Theatre, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest at the Gielgud Theatre and Bash at the Trafalgar Studios. She has also been responsible for a range of other shows around the capital and beyond, with her work being seen at the Menier Chocolate Factory, the Birmingham Rep and the Bush Theatre, to name but a few.

Meanwhile, Tamzin Outhwaite is well known for her roles in the likes of EastEnders, New Tricks and Sweet Charity at the Menier Chocolate Factory.

In a year that also brings Invincible to the stage, Breeders runs at the St James Theatre from 3rd September 2014.
