CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
Stan and Ollie want to go to the 'Sons of the Desert' annual convention but Mrs Hardy is not happy and puts her foot down. In retaliation the boys hatch a plan, pretending that Ollie is suffering from "a nervous shakedown", the only cure being that they should go for a trip to Honolulu for the good of Ollie's health. The subterfuge in place, the Boys head to Chicago to join the party with the rest of The Sons Of The Desert, happy in the knowledge that their wives will never find out. Until that is the ship that they were supposed to be travelling on to Honolulu happens to sink... Before the main event, there will be a selection of some of your favourite Laurel and Hardy sketches and songs as the cast perform a Laurel and Hardy Revue Show. Come and see Laurel and Hardy reincarnated at their best in this inventive new stage adaptation, as they struggle to maintain their dignity in a world almost as hapless as they are. Performers Michael Starke (Ollie), Roy Brandon (Stan), Matt Connor, Lori Haley Fox, Jonathan Markwood, Penelope Woodman. ProducerRoyal Court Liverpool.DirectorKen Alexander.DesignMark Walters.
