Theatre Preview: Porridge, 9 – 13 March, King’s Theatre, Edinburgh

2 Mar

Following recent tours of one-time hit BBC TV series Dad’s Army and Allo ‘Allo, Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais’ Porridge comes to Edinburgh’s King’s Theatre from Tuesday 9 – Saturday 13 March.

Written for stage by the original creators,  the cast of 15 is led by Shaun Williamson, best known for his role as Barry Evans in EastEnders.  The role of Godber, originally played by the late Richard Beckinsale has been taken by Daniel West.

The show once again sees Fletcher sharing his cell with naïve young Brummie and first-time offender, Lennie Godber, whom he reluctantly takes under his wing as we follow their hilarious antics while they struggle with rigged boxing matches and the occasional attempted breakout.

More information can be found on the King’s Theatre website.
