Laurel and Hardy

Multiple-award-winning theatre company, Northampton-based White Cobra Productions, are performing Another Fine Mess featuring Laurel and Hardy at the start of a national tour, culminating at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.

In the play, written by Gillian Plowman, we meet Stephen and Phil whose tribute act to Laurel and Hardy includes some of the duo’s classic sketches.

But as Stephen and Phil rehearse in the back room of a pub, real life intervenes.  A shocking revelation from Phil strains their relationship, possibly to destruction.

Another Fine Mess is part of a double bill of plays. Its accompanying play is Housebound by Simon Mawdsley. It involves a man in a mask and a woman in real trouble. 

Both shows are performed at The Clare Street venue from Tuesday May 24 until Saturday May 28 starting at 7.45pm each night.
