Cunard Announces UK Touring Production of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel on Queen Mary 2

Cunard has announced the performance of Deborah Moggach's The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel aboard the flagship ocean liner Queen Mary 2, 15-22 DEC 2022.

Headlining the show are celebrated stars of stage and screen, including Hayley Mills, who stars as Evelyn, Paul Nicholas as Douglas and Rula Lenska in the role of Madge.

The show's producer, Simon Friend, commented: "I am terrifically excited for our production of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel to embark on this adventure. Cunard's rich history is one of sophistication, catering for the most intrepid of travellers, and it is enormously flattering to be associated with this legacy. As a show about exploring the world and finding yourself anew, I hope too that it will connect to patrons watching while on the voyage!"

Star Hayley Mills said: "I thought I'd done it all but performing on the Queen Mary 2 in the North Atlantic will be an incredibly exciting new adventure to me and for the whole company."

The show, currently in production at London's Richmond Theatre, will conduct three matinee and evening performances in the ship's Royal Court Theatre during the seven-night Transatlantic Crossing. In addition, guests will have the opportunity to participate in a behind-the-scenes Q&A, as well as workshops and other appearances with the cast.

Based on the bestselling novel, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is focused on an eclectic group of British retirees as they embark on a new life with a journey to India. The luxury residence is far from the opulence they were promised, but as their lives begin to intertwine and they embrace the vibrancy of modern-day India, they are charmed in unexpected and life-changing ways.
