Hats Off To Laurel & Hardy.

Hats Off To Laurel & Hardy.


A tribute to one of the most famous duos in comedy history will be in Weston next month.

Hats Off To Laurel & Hardy will be performed at the Blakehay Theatre in Wadham Street on March 9.

The Lucky Dog Theatre Productions show has earned rave reviews since its debut in September 2013 and is regularly praised for being the most accurate and affectionate piece ever created about Brit Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.

Hats Off will explore the pair’s early lives before they shot to international fame as well as the decline of their movie careers and adulation received on stages across Europe.

A spokesman for the show said: “It details their commitment, the appreciation of their fans, the love of their wives and, most enduringly, their unerring devotion to each other.

“Expect to laugh your socks off, accompanied by a little singing and questionable dancing.”

The play has been written by member Philip Hutchinson and has been performed at venues including the Laurel & Hardy Museum in Ulveston and conventions in London, Manchester, Berlin and even Hollywood.

Awards have also come the show’s way including being voted as the best performance at the Birmingham’s fringe festival.

Laurel and Hardy became household names across the world from the 1920s to 1940s thanks to their slapstick cmedy routines. The duo appeared in 107 films together.

Tickets, priced £10, are available from the box office on 01934 645493 or online at www.blakehaytheatre.co.uk
