Uniquely amongst works about the duo, this new comedy drama – which has been expanded to two acts since its Edinburgh premiere - focuses on the pair’s love-hate relationship from Dudley Moore’s perspective. Returning from Hollywood in 1982 after his Oscar nomination for Arthur, Moore appears on a chat show where, through a series of flashbacks and sketches, the highs and lows of his earlier showbiz marriage with Peter Cook is revealed.
In Come Again, Tom Goodman-Hill and Kevin Bishop star as the eponymous Pete and Dud. They’re joined by Colin Hoult and Fergus Craig (aka comedy double act Colin and Fergus) as their Beyond the Fringe collaborators Jonathan Miller and Alan Bennett and Alexander Kirk as Ferguson.
The production is directed by Owen Lewis (How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, Got to Be Happy), designed by Janet Bird and presented in the West End by Simon and Siobhan Rhodes-Johnson, Lee Menzies, Bob Boyett and James Seabright.
