Murder at Oil Drum Lane - David Burton as Albert

Postby Richard Bignell » Fri May 31, 2013 10:05 am

I hope you don't mind me posting this query here, as it seems to be the most used part of the forum!

If anyone here saw the touring version of 'Murder at Oil Drum Lane' in 2006 and still has the programme, could you confirm if an actor called David Burton played Albert, either in the main cast or as the understudy?

Hello Richard; I have spent the last hour looking for my programme from the Glasgow performance but I can't locate it.
Jake Nightingale played Harold if thats any help.

I'm sure Bob will be able to help you out.

Yes, but the downloadable programme is for the original London run of the play rather than the national tour several months later.

I've since had it confirmed that David Burton was indeed the understudy during the tour, but having spoken to Harry Dickman this evening, he's been able to confirm that the old time his understudy was required was for a three night period during the London run, when Andrew Fettes took over.
