The Understudy Tickets and Dates

Palace Theatre, London

Actor Stephen McQueen has just landed a dream West End role. Well, that's not
quite true - what he's going to be is understudying film star (and 12th Sexiest
Man in the World) Josh Harper in the brand new show Mad, Bad and Dangerous
to Know, but still...

Whilst he's waiting for his time to shine, he reflects on his career - one that has
spanned everything from (non-speaking) Rent Boy 3 in The Bill to his recent
starring role as Sammy in the (low-budget) regional tour of Sammy The Squirrel's
Seriously Silly Safari.

With this new job Stephen's stage career may be destined for the dizzying
heights, but not everything is going quite as well. Stephen's wife left him two
years ago, wondering if he'd ever grow up; his daughter wonders when he?ll get
an actual job; worst of all, he's starting to fall for the leading man's wife.

The Understudy is the story of an underdog - a failed husband, a failing father, a
failing actor, and the impossible choice he's going to have to make between
stealing the show and stealing another man's wife.

Starring Stephen Fry, James Norton, Mina Anwar, Natalie Casey, Sasha Frost, Marie Lawrence, James McNicholas, Lizzie Muncey & more
