Times:
Thu 6th Oct 20:00

It’s been over half a century since Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy died. There is good reason why they are the best-loved comedy duo of all time.

This is a highly-regarded and popular play about the lives of Arthur Stanley Jefferson (Stan) and Norvell Hardy (Ollie). The show will guide you through their early lives, their steady rise to international stardom, the decline of their movie careers and their phoenix-like revival on the stages of Europe. It details their commitment to their work, the appreciation of their fans, the love of their wives and – most enduringly – their unerring devotion to each other.

★★★★★ 'The next best thing to meeting the comedy duo in person...Don't miss this rare treat' – Love Fringe

Tickets:£13.20 (Students £11.00)
