Thea Sharrock directs Danny DeVito and Richard Griffiths as the ageing vaudevillian team Willie Clark and Al Lewis in Neil Simon’s award-wining comedy, The Sunshine Boys. Designs by Hildegard Bechtler with lighting by Neil Austin and sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph.
Kings of comedy, Willie Clark (Danny DeVito) and Al Lewis (Richard Griffiths) aka The Sunshine Boys haven’t spoken to each other in years. When CBS call for the vaudevillian greats to be re-united for a nostalgic History of Comedy, past grudges resurface as they take centre stage once more. Ageing ailments aside, can this legendary double-act overcome their differences for one last show? Old rivalry and vintage hilarity abound in Neil Simon’s classic comedy of showbiz and friendship.
Sonia Friedman Productions, Richard Willis, Tulchin Bartner Productions, Roger Berlind, Rupert Gavin in association with Olympus Theatricals and Scott & Brian Zeilinger present “THE SUNSHINE BOYS”.
