Oliver Cotton’s new play ‘Wet Weather Cover’ transfers in for a limited season after a sold out run at The Kings Head has been closed at the Arts Theatre after one week.
Rain. Spain. An epic movie on location. Two actors, two egos. One leaking trailer.
Wet Weather Cover, which starred with Brad (Michael Brandon – Dempsey and Makepeace, Jerry Springer The Opera) and Stuart (Steve Furst – Lenny Beige, Little Britain) are two actors from very different backgrounds, one American, one English, with seemingly very little in common. Trapped together in a small leaking trailer on a film set, unable to work because of torrential rain, tensions mount. Secrets will be uncovered and resolutions undone in this critically acclaimed hilarious and explosive battle of wills.
The West End show Prick Up Your Ears is to close early due to poor sale when Matt Lucas pulled out of the play.
The Little Britain star, Matt Lucas withdrew from his role after his former civil partner, Kevin McGee, committed suicide. Prick Up Your Ears continues to play at the Comedy Theatre with Olivier award-winning and Tony award-nominated Con O’Neill playing the role of Kenneth Halliwell.
Prick Up Your Ears – a darkly funny and moving play imagines what really happened when, after years of creative collaboration, the door slammed shut and Kenneth was home alone. It tells the sensational story behind the domestic life of Joe Orton and Kenneth Halliwell, holed up in a tiny flat in Islington, trading well-trodden insults and hilarious put-downs like any old married couple.
