Laurel & Hardy
Author(s): Tom McGrath
Company: Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh
Tom McGrath was one of Scotland’s finest twentieth century playwrights and poets. He was also, for many years, the playwright in residence at The Lyceum where much of his work was performed.
In Laurel and Hardy, McGrath has the two iconic comedians look back over their lives, loves and friendship in a story that blends slapstick humour, melancholy and beautifully simple theatricality.
In 2005, Steven McNicoll and Barnaby Power played the two older men. Now, in 2022, they are closer to the real ages of Laurel and Hardy at the end of their careers.
