A sparkling revival of one of the great classic comedies of British theatre starring John D Collins, best known for his starring role in TV’s smash hit Allo! Allo!
In this fresh new production, the action of the play moves forward in time from late nineteenth century Salford to the year 1958. Rock and roll may have arrived and the youth revolution may be just around the corner but in Hobson’s shoe shop, Queen Victoria might as well still be on the throne!
With new songs by upcoming musicians Ben Goble with the Lockerbillies (Glastonbury 2017) which echo the sounds of the time, from skiffle to Presley and from Doris Day to Jerry Lee Lewis.
