During the play’s West End run, Nicola had a simultaneous connection to two other West End shows :

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time – Nicola originated the role of Judy, Christopher’s mother when the play was first staged at the Cottesloe Theatre of the National Theatre in 2012 but she did not join the show in its subsequent West End transfer. As of 2015, this show is still playing in the West End.

Di and Viv and Rose – Nicola originated the role of Viv when the play was first staged at the Hampstead Downstairs theatre in 2011 but she did not join the show in any of its subsequent stagings.
