ERIC AND LITTLE ERN To Return To London For Festive Season
Seabright Productions presents Eric and Little Ern. Created and performed by Ian Ashpitel and Jonty Stephens, featuring classic material by Eddie Braben, Dick Hills and Sid Green, and directed by Owen Lewis. The show will run from Tuesday 16 December 2014 to Sunday 11 January 2015, with press night on Wednesday 17 December.
The production returns to London for a strictly limited four-week Christmas season following its acclaimed 2013 premiere, for which it received an Olivier Award nomination as Best Entertainment.
This affectionate, moving and fantastically funny homage to the greatest comedy double act that Britain has ever seen vividly brings back warm memories of a bygone era. Recreating some of the finest moments of Eric and Ernie's television and stage performances, cherished moments from the archives sit alongside new material created by the performers. Together they make a brilliant comedy that recreates the all-ages appeal of Morecambe and Wise in their heyday, featuring classic material including the original Grieg Piano Concerto sketch and Eric's take on Shakespeare.
