At Hareford Hall in Hampshire, suspense is in the air. The family solicitor has found the long-lost heir to the Hareford title and riches. But, to everyone’s horror, he’s a Cockney barrow boy called Bill Snibson. As the Duchess determinedly sets out to transform him into a true gentleman, Bill’s sweetheart Sally wonders how she fits in to his new life. Before too long, Bill has to answer some soul-searching questions about who he really is.

 

This uproarious, much-loved musical comedy includes the enormously popular numbers The Sun Has Got His Hat On and Lambeth Walk. The revised version by Stephen Fry and Mike Ockrent, also featuring Leaning on a Lamppost, won the 1985 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Musical.

 

This new staging is directed by Daniel Evans with designs by Lez Brotherston and choreography by Alistair David, the outstanding team behind Festival 2017’s hit musical Fiddler on the Roof

 

Matt Lucas plays Bill Snibson. Known to a television audience of millions for the smash hit TV series Little Britain, his theatre work includes the role of Thenardier in Les Misérables in the West End. His recent screen credits include Doctor Who, Alice in Wonderland, Paddington and Bridesmaids.

 

Caroline Quentin makes her Chichester debut as the Duchess of Dene. One of television’s most popular actors from series such as Men Behaving BadlyJonathan Creek and Dickensian, her recent stage work includes The Hypocrite (RSC) and Relative Values (West End)
