Five years ago Matthew Kelly made his Curve debut as the cantankerous patriarch in a dark play about family secrets. Now he’s preparing to return as the, erm, cantankerous patriarch in a classic romantic comedy. It’s the kind of role he loves, but he’s missing his sofa, he tells Lizz Brain.
Smash hit award-winning comedy is on its way to Leicester – with a tiptop comedian in the lead role. Lizz Brain catches up with Rufus Hound.
John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men is almost as old as one of the stars of its latest tour, and just as politically astute, writes Lizz Brain. Actor Dudley Sutton was four years old in 1937, when the novella was published, yet he’s now touring the country in a revival of the classic tale.
