Catch Holland’s one-man show

Hi-De-Hi star Jeffrey Holland performs his popular one-man show ....And This Is My Friend Mr Laurel at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre on Friday, October 9, from 7.30pm.

Thursday, 8th October 2015, 10:25 am

Co-written with Gail Luow, the show enjoyed a critically-acclaimed sell-out premiere at Edinburgh 2014 and is now in the middle of a major UK tour.

Set in the bedroom of a sick Oliver Hardy, the show takes place during Laurel’s visit to the dying man.

Recounting their past success as the comedy double act Laurel and Hardy, this is a humorous and touching look at one of the great cinematic partnerships of the last century.
