Count Arthur Strong

Archant

A popular television sitcom will be brought to life on a Weston-super-Mare stage this summer.

Count Arthur Strong will take to the stage at The Playhouse, in High Street, on June 7 at 8pm.

The show is based on BBC sitcom about Count Arthur Strong – a deluded out-of-work actor from Yorkshire who believes he is a legend of show business.

The TV series is due to return screens later this year, and this show will serve as a perfect preview for fans which are hungry for their next fix of Doncaster’s ‘favourite’ son.

Star of the show is Steve Delaney, who stars as the attention-seeking Count Arthur.

Delaney has also written the show since it started out as a popular comedy segment on BBC Radio Four.

The stage show has earned rave reviews from its performances across the country, and is certain to make for an entertaining night at The Playhouse.

Tickets for this show, priced £22, are available from 01934 645544 or online via www.theplayhouse.co.uk

The Mercury has teamed up with The Playhouse to offer two lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to see Count Arthur Strong in Weston on June 7 at 8pm
