…And This is My Friend Mr Laurel

by Gail Louw and Jeffrey Holland

Fulfilling a long held desire to pay tribute to his hero Stan Laurel, Jeffrey Holland tells this intriguing, funny and often poignant tale of friendship, love and dedication about one of Hollywood’s great film comedians.

Jeffrey (Hi-de-Hi, You Rang M’Lord) stars in this one-man show about friendship, memories and a couple of remarkable lives. Set in the bedroom of a sick Oliver Hardy the show takes place during Laurel’s visit to the dying man. Recounting their past success as the comedy double act Laurel and Hardy, this is a humorous and touching look at one of the great cinematic partnerships of the last century.

Holland’s lifelong dream of playing Stan Laurel is sensitively realised in this one-man show’ Edinburgh Evening News

“Incredibly insightful and poignant, thanks to a controlled and powerful central performance.” The Public Reviews

“An impressive, nuanced performance, perfectly capturing the doddering reminiscences of an actor past his prime. “ Three Weeks

Spellbinding and magically, timelessly funny’  The Stage
