The cast includes John Hewer (Tony Hancock in Hancock’s Half Hour: The Lost Episodes and Tommy Cooper in Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show) and Jeremy Smith (alumni from the National Youth Theatre and The Young Vic Company).

Albert and Harold are father and son. One proclaims he’s “a poor old man” while the other protests that actually he’s “a dirty old man!”

In actual fact, both are telling the truth. These two warring rag-and-bone-men, in their Shepherd’s Bush scrapyard home, became household favourites for entire generations throughout the 60s and 70s and they still continue to entertain audiences today.

The show will be performed on Saturday November 11 from 7.30pm.
