Warwick Davis to Launch The Reduced Height Theatre Company with SEE HOW THEY RUN Tour, Feb-May 2014

A comedy of huge 'small' proportions is about to embark on a 12 week UK tour from February - May 2014.

See How They Run, the wonderfully funny and much loved farce is brought to life on stage once again but this time with a difference - all of the actors are under four feet tall!

The Reduced Height Theatre Company is the first theatre company made up of entirely short actors and is the brainchild of Warwick Davis, the most successful short actor in Britain. With a career spanning over three decades, he is best known for his roles in Willow, Star Wars, the Harry Potter films and most recently on our TV screens in Life's Too Short, Doctor Who and An Idiot Abroad 3. This will be Warwick's first venture as actor and producer.

Warwick Davis, who also appears in the play says:

' The formation of The Reduced Height Theatre Company is a dream realised for me. As a short actor, I am not always afforded the same professional opportunities as my taller colleagues. This new venture will tip the balance in favour of myself and the other talented short actors in the UK. In these times of equality and diversity, this will be a unique, bold and empowering journey'.

See How They Run is nowadays widely regarded as one of the best farces written by Philip King. Set in 1944 in a vicarage in the village of Merton-cum-Middlewick, it is a quintessentially British, extremely well written play featuring timelessly funny characters - a maid, a spinster, a German soldier, retired actors, a bishop and a handful of vicars. A plot of mishaps and mistaken identity causes the action to spiral out of control, culminating in a houseful of bishops, deacons and other assorted clergymen.

The show is suitable for the whole family so for an evening of theatre that won't be 'short' of laughs, book your tickets now.
