Spike revisited

Spike by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman is at Blackpool Grand Theatre this November.

Tune in to Eccles, Count Jim Moriarty and Bluebottle as radio sensations The Goons return in this play from November 15–19.

While Harry Secombe and Peter Sellers get down to the serious business of becoming overnight celebrities, fellow Goon and chief writer Spike Milligan finds himself pushing the boundaries of comedy and testing the patience of the BBC.

Contains strong language, references to suicide, loud bangs, strobe lighting and the use of prop cigarettes and guns on stage. Recommended 10+.
