Mr Laurel and Mr Hardy

Play at Edinburgh Fringe


Sons of the Desert have given a hearty thumbs-up to a new play at the Edinburgh Fringe. Mr Laurel and Mr Hardy is a gem written and directed by David Leeson.

Set in a time when the Boys were in their twilight years and on tour in the UK, we are able to look back with David (as Stan) and Colin Alexander (as Ollie) on some of the pair's past glorious moments. There are plenty of comic gags, some wonderful singing and a few dance routines, lifted from the movies we all adore. They are so lovingly recreated that it is no surprise that the audience was spellbound and the play met with rapturous applause at the end. This one is destined to be one of the great Laurel and Hardy plays. Catch it before it ends on 20th August. You cannot afford to miss this one! Highly recommended.
