Ruth Jones to star in Sister Act in London’s West End

Ruth Jones is to star in Sister Act in London’s West End in 2024.

Gavin and Stacey star and co-writer Ruth Jones will swap Barry Island for blessings as ‘Mother Superior’, making her West End debut at the Dominion Theatre from Friday 15 March 2024. Tickets are on sale now here.

Ruth joins the cast alongside Beverley Knight, reprising her performance as Deloris Van Cartier, until Saturday 8 June 2024. From 10 June 2024, the role of Deloris Van Cartier will be played by Alexandra Burke, with further casting to be announced.

Ruth Jones said: “I’m proper chuffed to be making my West End debut in Sister Act next March playing the legendary Mother Superior at the Dominion Theatre. It’s a crackin’ role and a crackin’ show. Who knew wearing a habit could feel so fabulous! I can’t wait!”

Ahead of making her West End debut, Ruth will join the UK and Ireland tour of Sister Act when it plays the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin from 13 – 24 February 2024.

A glittering homage to the enduring themes of kinship, sisterhood, and melody, Sister Actspins the tale of a vivacious disco icon whose world is upended by a chance encounter with crime.

Placed under protective custody, she finds refuge in the most inconspicuous of havens—a convent. Masquerading as a member of the clergy and under the wary eye of the Mother Superior, she guides the convent’s choir to newfound confidence, all the while embarking on a journey of self-discovery that reignites her own passion for music.
