The Mentalists

The Mentalists Theatre breaks

About the show

Richard Bean’s dark comedy, The Mentalists, is about two men, one hotel room and a (not entirely shared) dream to change the world. The Mentalists theatre breaks will give you the chance to see Stephen Merchant in the West End. Famous for his work with Ricky Gervais on The Office, Extras and An Idiot Abroad, Merchant makes his West End debut alongside Steffan Rhodri, best known for his roles as Dave Coaches in Gavin and Stacey and as Reg Cattermole in Harry Potter. However, Rhodri is a rising star as a stage actor with two recent West End roles in Posh and Absent Friends.

The Mentalists theatre breaks will run for a limited time only in London, so book now to avoid missing out on this intriguing piece of comic theatre. For maximum enjoyment, it is best to book The Mentalists theatre trips without knowing the plot of the show. However, we will tell you that the play is a two-hander about two ‘friends’, Ted and Morrie, and their plan to film a world-changing message from a faceless Finsbury Park Hotel room.

What to expect from The Mentalists

With a theatre break to see The Mentalists, you can expect a night of hilarious and intriguing entertainment, followed by a stay in an excellent London hotel. The Mentalists is written by Richard Bean, who wrote the now internationally famous One Man, Two Guvnors, and directed by up-and-coming director Abbey Wright. While all this talent is behind the scenes, on the stage at Wyndham’s theatre, you will see two great comic actors in fine form.

All The Mentalists theatre breaks come with tickets to the show and a stay overnight in central London. We bring together all the official ticket suppliers for the show, ensuring that you get the best seats and the best price available for The Mentalists at Wyndham’s Theatre. We also bring together a number of hotel suppliers to ensure you get the best rates. However, we are very selective about which hotels we use for our London theatre breaks, and only offer accommodation that is good quality, well reviewed and good value. To make things even easier, we offer discounted rail travel from all mainland destinations.
