Agents are not supposed to be more famous than their clients – unless, of course, you are the formidable, outrageous and hilarious Peggy Ramsay…

Tamsin Greig stars as the legend that held complete sway over the theatre world in a career that spanned thirty years. Alan Plater’s raucously funny play is peopled with characters who fall under the spell of this unlikely heroine, who believed infinitely more in art than she did in money – or in good manners.

Peggy For You received its World Premiere at Hampstead Theatre in 1999 and was Olivier nominated for Best New Comedy. Alan Plater wrote extensively for the stage, screen and radio from the 1960s to the 2000s. Starting out on the seminal police drama Z Cars, his 200+ full-length TV dramas include The Beiderbecke Trilogy and the BAFTA winning A Very British Coup.

Richard Wilson directs his sixth Hampstead production, previous work including Terry Johnson’s Imagine Drowning (1991), Simon Burke’s The Lodger (1994) and Antony Sher’s Primo, which transferred from the National Theatre in 2005. A former Associate of the Royal Court, Wilson directed many new plays there including Mr Kolpert (2000), The Woman Before (2005) and Rainbow Kiss (2006).

Olivier Award winner Tamsin Greig makes a highly anticipated return to Hampstead following Tony Kushner’s The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures in 2016 and William Boyd’s Longing (2014). Recent stage credits include Twelfth Night (National Theatre) and Labour of Love (West End). Screen credits include Friday Night DinnerEpisodes and Green Wing.
