HABEAS CORPUS - BLACKBURN DRAMA CLUB

HABEAS CORPUS is a comedy stage play by the Englsih author Alan Bennett. It was first performed at the Lyric Theatre in London on 10 May 1973, with Alec Guinness and Margaret Courtenay in the lead roles.

It concerns the aging Dr. Arthur Wicksteed and his pursuit of a nubile patient, Felicity Rumpers. Wicksteed's wife, Muriel, is, in turn, lusting after the charming head of the BMA, Sir Percy Shorter, who, as well as being Wicksteed's old rival, turns out to be Felicity's father- the result of an under-the-table liaison during an air-raid with Lady Rumpers, her mother.

Felicity herself is pregnant and finds a way to cover it up in the hypochondriac son of Dr. Wicksteed, Denis.

Meanwhile, Wicksteed's spinster sister Connie, ashamed of her flat-chestedness, has schemes of her own. The 'chorus' is provided by the lower-class, housekeeper Mrs. Swabb.

BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED LAGER - RORY McGRATH and PHILIP POPE

RORY McGRATH and PHILIP POPE with BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED LAGER

After their hit dad-rock album Dark Side of the Moob, Rory and Philip return to touring with an evening of sophisticated comedy and song.

Expect wit, elegance, and clever musical pastiche (but don't worry, there's also silliness and filth).

This is the show where music and comedy meet, have a few drinks, fight, then stagger home singing hits from the 50's. Something to offend everyone.

Rory, star of BBC Two's Three Men In a Boat, and Philip first worked together in 1983, on the Channel 4 comedy Chelmsford 123. It was the first series from Hat Trick Productions, which Rory co-founded.

RORY McGRATH is a comedian and writer, best known for roles in Who Dares Wins, Chelmsford 123, Three Men In A Boat and its successors. He was also a regular panelist on they Think It's All Over.

PHILIP POPE is a composer, musician, writer and actor, who appeared in BBC radio comedies radio Active and Old Harry's Game; TV comedy shows Who Dares Wins, Chelmsford 123, KYTV, Blackadder (Leonardo Acropolis), Only Fools and Horses (Tony Angelino). He toured as a member of the cast of the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Radio Series Live! show for which he was also musical director. He also wrote or co-wrote many comic songs for Not The Nine O'Clock News and Spitting Image including British Number 1 hit single "The Chicken Song".
