Autumn Tour Announced For Ladies & Gentlemen

UK tour dates announced for Ladies & Gentlemen, directed and choreographed by Lea Anderson and directed and composed by Steve Blake, costume design by Tim Spooner, lighting design by Simon Corder and starring Makiko Aoyama, Gareth Clark, Belinda Neave, Marega Palser, Caroline Sabin and Bert Van Gorp.

Besieged by an ever shifting and bewildering miscellany of inscrutable and enigmatic props, the last sorry remnants of a legendary music hall family doggedly endeavour to reconstruct fragments of misremembered routines and hazily recollected punch-lines, in a hopeless attempt to revive their all but forgotten Music Hall act.
