Happy New Year – and welcome to my first post of 2020!
Good stuff to update you with – I’m coming up on the Telly and on the Stage.
I return to Emmerdale January 30 and Feb 4 as TREVOR.
Lovely character, very different to past appearances – especially my Emmerdale Elvis 🙂 and part of the big current storyline.
I’m name-checked in the Radio Times again…
Welcome to Shangri-La
I’m already starting to salivate about this production, an amazing new play written by BAFTA Break-through Brit Gemma Langford, Directed by Joel Parry for Broken Biscuits at Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester, 11th-20th Feb 2020. Get your tickets HERE
I play BURT – more about him – and the show – as the production comes together.
Here’s a video trailer to whet your appetite….
And here’s more info about the play…
Cheryl’s life is anything but ordinary – living in a run-down seaside B & B (that also doubles as a swinger’s club) alongside a gambling man, a fortune teller and an elderly deviant, she would give anything for a bit of boring.
But you should be careful what you wish for.
When George turns up late one night looking for his missing wife, he brings with him a cash-filled wallet and the promise of a normal life. But this promise comes with a price – the very soul of Shangri-La and its inhabitants.
Written by BAFTA Break-through Brit Gemma Langford, Welcome to Shangri-La is a dark comedy that challenges its audience to look at their own definition of “normality” and to ask themselves “am I alright?”
Broken Biscuits are a new theatre company in Manchester championing working class voices.
Written by Gemma Langford
Directed by Joel Parry
Produced by Hannah Ellis Ryan of HER Productions
