About the Event
Acclaimed actor, Jeffrey Holland (Hi de Hi, Masterchef, Pointless Celebrities) visits Hailsham to perform his one-man show ‘…and this is my friend, Mr Laurel’.
Set in Oliver Hardy’s bedroom, the action takes place as Laurel pays a visit to his sick friend, recounting their past success as one of the greatest cinematic partnerships of the century and providing an in depth, humorous and touching account of the comedian’s life. Almost 7 years ago now Jeff fulfilled a long-time ambition when he trod the boards as one of the world’s best loved comedy stars, Stan Laurel. He portrayed his idol in a new one-man play ‘…. And this is my friend Mr Laurel’ co-written by the award-winning playwright Gail Louw and Jeff himself. The play debuted on Wednesday 21st August, at Upstairs At The Gatehouse and running until Sunday 25th August. The production then played at The Tabard Theatre in October. Such has been the response that Jeff is now touring the country with this amazing piece of theatre.
