The one-man show, Morecambe is more than just a monologue. It forms an incredibly emotional yet hilarious evocation of a perennial national treasure, Eric Morecambe. It takes the audience back to 1984 to join the much-loved comedian for the penultimate stop on his heavenward journey, reminiscing, before dancing off into immortality.
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.
Lighted Fools Theatre Company makes its ninth visit to the Mill Studio following successful productions of Arthur Miller’s The Price, Ariel Dorfman’s Death and the Maiden, Tim Firth’s Neville’s Island, Alan Bennett’s The Old Country, Jim Cartwright’s Two, Simon Gray’s Quartermaine’s Terms, Hugh Whitemore’s Stevie and Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming.
