Laurel & Hardy


  • Date: Friday 21st February 2014
  • Time: 7.30pm

Laurel & Hardy invented the modern comedy double-act and are still as influential today as ever they were. Affectionately regarded by millions, they made over 100 films together and the iconic moments they created still live long in the memory. Set in the ‘afterlife’ Tom McGrath’s play takes an intimate and hilarious journey through the rise and demise of this incredible partnership.

Through laughter and tears, the fat guy and the skinny guy relive the most important moments in their careers and introduce the key players who helped to shape and influence their lives. Performed by Lee Pace and Dan James, a comic double act with a wealth of pantomime experience behind them, Laurel & Hardy seamlessly mixes live action with video footage to tell the heart-warming story of a legendary partnership. A not to be missed half-term treat featuring a feast of slapstick family fun!

“Dan James and Lee Pace are a true comic find in the best slapstick tradition of Laurel and Hardy. James’ character’s face is priceless.”
Mike Martin, The Stage
