"Slick, emotive and thoroughly entertaining" BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE

Being Tommy Cooper

Las Vegas,1954. In a small hotel room the up-and-coming Tommy Cooper faces the prospect of his first big failure. With the show closing and a warring relationship with his manager, Tommy finds an offer on the table and a drink in his hand.

Powerful, provocative, painfully funny and true, Tom Green's astonishing play finds the brilliance in Britain's most famous comic and explores the pressures and loneliness of fame. The man who could make you laugh just by walking on to stage comes vividly alive in this confrontational new play recently nominated for four Off West End Awards including Best Production and Best New Writing.
