When it comes to comedy double acts none have come as close or endured as long as Laurel and Hardy. This new play, set during their 1950s UK tour, allows the boys to reflect on their friendship and incredible career, and will also include their best-loved songs and routines. Searchlight received four-star and five-star reviews with their show on Noel Coward last year, and are delighted to be back in the company of their comedy heroes. Laurel and Hardy are consistently voted the best comedy double act of all time for their timeless and ageless appeal.
David Leeson and Colin Alexander provide heartfelt moments of warmth and affection as they take the audience on a journey through the later years of Laurel and Hardy’s stage careers. Leeson and Alexander don’t attempt to recreate a direct impersonation of Laurel and Hardy on stage, recognising that the magic that this comic duo had is hard to emulate. Instead the play is portrayed though the eyes of two stage hands that were present on Laurel and Hardy’s 1950 Tour of British Music Halls.
