Veteran comic and radio actor team up for Eye show
Veteran comic Roy Hudd and voice actor Brian Hewlett, of the Archers, have teamed up and are set to appear in Eye.
The celebrity duo will be appearing at a performed reading of a new play, called Altered Egos, by Eye writer John Gleeson, and also starring his son, actor, writer and director Jak Quartermaine.
John Gleeson, who helped form the New Eye Theatre Company in 2014, has appeared in Dr Who, To The Manor Born and The Bill.
He has written many plays since, with his latest exploring the unusual friendship of three characters.
“The three main characters are all living with unfulfilled ambitions, and seeking mutual friends, producing a comic, sad and dangerous situation,” said Mr Gleeson.
Roy Hudd, OBE, is an English comedian, actor, presenter, radio host, author and authority on the history of music hall entertainment.
Brian Hewlett has starred as Neil Carter in the Archers for 45 years.
The performed reading will be held at the Bank Arts Centre in Eye on Sunday, October 7, at 7.30pm. Doors open at 7pm.
There will be a question-and-answer session with the actors afterwards.
The performance is a charity event aimed at raising funds for the Bank Arts Centre. All professional services are being given for free.
Tickets cost £10 in advance or £12 on the night.
