Unlike the double act which brought so much joy to millions of Britons, Morecambe is a one-man show detailing the heart-rendering yet hilarious tale of Eric Morecambe's life.

The new production, coming to Fairfield Halls, Croydon, on April 15, once again stars Bob Golding who was nominated in the Olivier Award Best Actor category for the extraordinary portrayal of the comic in 2010.

This year to mark the 30th anniversary of Morecambe’s death a brand new production of the West End play that celebrates the life of the man, who played all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order, embarks on a national tour.

Gary Morcambe, Eric’s son, said: “Bob is a family friend, and never fails to astonish us with his knowledge and understanding of my father.

“On stage, his performance captures the spirit of Eric and cleverly delivers the important bits of his story in a whistle-stop tour of his life that is quite astounding to behold.

“I never get bored watching him in full “Eric” flow.”

Tuesday April 15 at 7.30pm at Ashcroft Theatre, Fairfield Halls, Park Lane, Croydon, CR9 1DG.

For tickets priced from £16.50 to £18.50 plus a booking fee of £2.25 call 0208 688 9291.
