TV comedienne Catherine Tate is to take to the stage later this year, playing a woman who attempted to assassinate US president Gerald Ford in 1975.

The former Doctor Who star will join Mike McShane and Andy Nyman in the Menier Chocolate Factory revival of Stephen Sondheim’s musical Assassins.

First staged in 1990, the show brings together people who have tried to kill the US president, some successfully.

Jamie Lloyd will direct the production at the South London venue.

The director’s recent credits include the Martin Freeman-led staging of Shakespeare’s Richard III at London’s Trafalgar Studios.

Tate, who can currently be seen in BBC One sitcom Big School, will play Sara Jane Moore in the show from 21 November until 8 February.

"Do you ever regret not becoming a teacher?

Because every day in my job I get to shape young people’s lives for the better… and what could be more important than that?”

"For one brief moment I was the most important woman in the whole of the universe. Oh gosh, I can’t thank Russell [T Davies] enough for just making that possible. For many people, I’m sure, what a gamble to take on someone like me who is known, by the vast majority of people, for wearing wigs and comedy teeth." - Catherine Tate
