News: Paul Whitehouse To Star In Stage Version Of Only Fools And Horses

John Sullivan’s iconic and record-breaking television series has been turned into a brand-new, home-grown West End musical spectacular.  With a script and original score by John’s son, Jim Sullivan and comedian Paul Whitehouse, prepare to get reacquainted with Britain’s most loveable rogues and experience the classic comedy brought to life once again through 20 ingenious and hilarious songs.

Paul Whitehouse also takes centre stage as Grandad, uniting with Tom Bennett (Del Boy) and Ryan Hutton (Rodney) in this unique showstopper, featuring cherished material from the TV series. Join us as we take a trip back to 1989, where it’s all kicking off in Peckham. While the yuppie invasion of London is in full swing, love is in the air as Del Boy sets out on the rocky road to find his soul mate, Rodney and Cassandra prepare to say ‘I do’, and even Trigger is gearing up for a date (with a person!).  Meanwhile, Boycie and Marlene give parenthood one final shot and Grandad takes stock of his life and decides the time has finally arrived to get his piles sorted. 

With musical contributions from Chas & Dave, the beloved theme tunes as you’ve never heard them before and an array of comic songs full of character and cockney charm, you’re guaranteed to have a right knees-up!  Only Fools and Horses The Musical is a feel-good family celebration of traditional working class London life and the aspirations we all share.

Directed by Caroline Jay Ranger, Only Fools and Horses The Musical will also feature many of the hugely loveable characters from the TV series: Raquel, Denzil, Mickey Pearce, Mike the Barman and the dreaded Driscoll Brothers.

Paul Whitehouse is on The One Show on BBC One on Wednesday, January 30 at 7pm.

Only Fools And Horses – The Musical will be at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from February 9, 2019. Tickets on sale now here. See interactive seating plan here: https://seatplan.com/london/theatre-royal-haymarket-venue/
