Review

Though Car Share’s Sian Gibson pops by for a brief but crucial guest spot, this is a two-hander for Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith. It shows yet again what astute and versatile performers they are – even when they’re playing a lamentable comedy duo, Cheese and Crackers, whose peak was one series on Anglia TV that no one remembers. Blankety Blank and the big time eluded them.

In a gloomy church hall, Len and Tommy meet for the first time in 30 years. Can they settle their differences, get past a wounding incident in Bernie Clifton’s dressing room and revive their act? A tragic tale, bitingly told.

Summary

Northern double act Len and Tommy, more commonly known as Cheese & Crackers, last performed on stage together 30 years ago, when a fateful night at the Glasgow Pavilion drove the pair apart - seemingly for good - with Tommy walking out on Len. Now the comedians embark on one final gig together in front of an invited audience. Darkly comic drama, written by and starring The League of Gentlemen's Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, with Sian Gibson (Peter Kay's Car Share) making a guest appearance.
