Audiences and critics are loving Mad Dogs and an Englishman
Wed 28 May 2014
Audiences and critics are loving our production of Mad Dogs and an Englishman at the Guildhall Theatre so don't miss your chance to see this double-bill with "delightful and insightful humour" Derby Telegraph. You still have time to grab some tickets but hurry as the show ends Sat 31 May.
Described by Artsbeat as "a delectable double dose of comedy from some of Derbyshire's finest artists", Mad Dogs and an Englishman stars Derby LIVE favourites Sean O'Callaghan (Mother Came Too and The Taming of the Shrew), Steven Blakeley (ITV's Heartbeat, Broken Hearted and Mother Came Too) and Laura Freeman (Much Ado About Nothing) and is written by Derbyshire-based writer Tim Elgood who also wrote the hugely popular Derby LIVE productions: The Pros The Cons and A Screw and Mother Came Too.
Audience comments include: "There are jokes and they are funny but it is the tenderness that makes you smile" and "You could go to the West End and not see a performance like Blakeley's".
Mad Dogs and an Englishman is a double-bill featuring The Dog House which is a poignant, warm and witty play from a dog's eye view about homelessness, heartbreak and humans that will have you laughing out loud and moved by its tenderness. Bare Words is the second play in the double-bill and tells the story of a struggling young writer on the verge of achieving greatness, if he can only conquer his battle with the words... the director... his mother... and his flirtatious muse!
Tickets are available here or at the Derby LIVE Box Office on 01332 255800 and are priced from £9.
