Drawing: Penelope Keith and Peter Bowles in The Rivals at Theatre Royal Haymarket

Keith + Bowles

Penelope Keith and Peter Bowles teamed up again – this time on the West End boards. Their ‘partnership’ goes back to the late 70’s when Penelope, playing the forthright, plummy-accented widow Audrey fforbes-Hamilton and Peter as the debonaire millionaire Richard DeVere featured in the hugely popular British TV sitcom TO THE MANOR BORN. They also starred in the BAFTA-winning EXECUTIVE STRESS alongside Geoffrey Palmer. In 2010 they appeared at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket in London for Sheridan’s comedy of manners, THE RIVALS, signing my black biro sketch at the theatre in December that year.
