“A show that will bring sunshine into the lives of all who see it” – Daily Telegraph
Morecambe is a one-man tour-de-force and a night out like no other. Morecambe forms a hilarious and incredibly emotional evocation of a perennial national treasure, taking its audience back to 1984 to join the much-loved comedian for the penultimate stop on his heavenward journey, reminiscing before dancing off into immortality. Eric introduces us to his mother, Sadie, wife Joan and, of course, his friend, partner and number two, Ernie Wise.
Having won a 2009 Scotsman Fringe First Award for “innovation and outstanding new writing”, a subsequent West End production of Morecambe was also awarded the 2010 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Entertainment.
Director, Ray Ledsham, says “It has been a delight to bring to the stage the life story of a national treasure. Eric’s journey from a tentative boy to his untimely death reveal his roles as a son, husband, best friend and ultimately Britain’s best loved comedian as we have never seen them before.”
