Not only a reincarnation of Britain's funniest and most influential comedian and satirist, but also a darkly comic insight into the self destructive urges of an alcoholic manic depressive. Backstage in 1972, Pete is in his dressing room following a disastrous first night of his new show with Dud, Behind the Fridge
. Dud's not talking to him, his manager is furious, his wife is leaving him so the only person left upon whom to vent his bilious spleen is a star struck assistant stage manager. Whilst remaining an entirely original piece of work, Pete 'n' Me
takes its inspiration from Peter Cook himself and the memories of those that knew him. As such it is wry, poignant, acerbic and, at times, really quite rude.Performers Steve Devereaux, Jonathan Hansler, Lisa Hogg, Bonnie Langford.
