Derek and Rodney and all their stories are back... only now they’ve been turned into a musical! Relive the United Kingdom’s most legendary series with this revival of John Sullivan’s Only Fools & Horses. His son, Jim Sullivan, and expert comedian Paul Whitehouse are the producers of this 100% British and authentically ground-breaking musical. OK, so maybe the world has changed a lot, but not our lads, they’re still trying to scrape out a living for themselves with all manner of wheeling and dealing and products of dubious origin. But beware: it seems that they’ve learnt to sing and dance when they visit the market… There’s no way you can miss this last story!
Running time: TBC
Recommended age: 5+
Derek Edward Trotter (Del Boy) and Rodney "Rodders" Charlton Trotter are two incorrigible brothers. Aged 25 and 35, they live in a council house with their grandfather. Lazy, rather dodgy and tremendously imaginative, their attempts to survive in a London neighbourhood get them into all manner of enterprises of dubious legality but amusing consequences.
Only Fools & Horses is one of the United Kingdom’s longest-running, iconic and most popularly acclaimed sitcoms. It has made generations laugh down through the decades, and it has marked a milestone in British television. Even to this day, some networks continue airing the series, with more than respectable audiences.
The musical will combine some of the most famous scenes from the series with new and hilarious situations. Set in 1989, it will tell us about how Del and Rodney fall in love with Raquel and Cassandra, in a scenario where things are going a bit too fast for them.
The first performance is on 9 February 2019, and at the moment shows have been scheduled until 6 July 2019.
