The comedy tells the true story of George Frederick Cooke, the 18th Century classical actor who was recurrently held to be drunk in performance and as a consequence, ordered by the theatre management to apologise to his audience.
The piece was written for my late friend, Gordon Rowe, Chorley actor known for stage and television, most noticeably, ’Last of the Summer Wine’. He died in 2007 aged 70 from cancer and asked Dorothy his wife to pass down the play to me believing I might make use of it.
Therefore this is a World Premier and I have everything crossed, if only not to disappoint Gordon.
Touring throughout 2013.
