Modern Slavery Statement

Modern Slavery Statement. Many plays in the nostalgia genre have focused on popular radio and TV programmes, for example 'Round The Horne Revisited', 'The Goons', and 'Steptoe & Son: Murder At Oil Drum Lane'. Pete and Dud: Come Again' is different in that it's not based solely on a TV or radio programme, though many people will remember the principal characters from the BBC TV series 'Not Only. The chat show format for 'Pete and Dud: Come Again' started a little uneasily but soon got into its stride helped along with a little generosity from the appreciative and responsive packed house.

Pete and Dud: Come Again is a stage play about British Beyond the Fringe comedians Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, which was written by Chris Bartlett and Nick Awde.

Parkinson-type chatshow, and use it as a framing device to tell the Dud and Pete story in flashback, is contrived.

In the wake of both their deaths, there has been more than enough about the lives and loves of Cook and Moore, but Chris Bartlett and Nick Awde's play - revised since a shorter version premiered in Edinburgh last year - deserves its outing, not only because it offers an opportunity to relive some of the duo's famous skits, but also because it. doesn't shirk the pain of their love-hate relationship. It is like watching a marriage going horribly wrong

Kevin Bishop can grin and mug as goofily as Dud and even bang out Beethoven parodies on the piano, and the laidback . Yet I laughed less often, perhaps partly because of the format of Chris Bartlett and Nick Awde’s play.
