Murder in Oil Drum Lane Tour dates announced...

It’s over 30 years since the ink dried on the last Steptoe script to be produced. Now Albert and Harold are back on the stage without the original cast and a script without Alan. Can this new venture live up to expectations

I've booked - I think :!: :!: :!:

I booked on the dammed Ticketmaster site where you only have 3 minutes to enter the detail's :evil:

After 2 failed tries; i think I have booked a ticket for the Theatre Royal Glasgow on Thurs 7 Sept afternoon matinee at 2.30.
They sent an e mail confirmation but the money hasn't been taken from my account yet :roll:

Archie, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Please send us a review once you have seen it, I will use it to create a page dedicated to the play. Graham and I spoke about it recently and he picked up on a number of things I missed, so I would be keen to hear your perspective.

The Theatre Royal has a section where you can E mail the stars of the play maybe you could get in touch and tell them about the site :idea:

Both wife and myself were crying at the end of their performance. Brilliantly portrayed, a fabulous night out. 10/10

Shame it's now all ended. :(

Thanks Archie. Yeah, it was far better than I had expected it to be - much like the series itself, full of laughs yet the odd sad moment here & there too. Good set too...I never saw 'Albert' make his first entrance via that secret door. :shock:

Hi All,

What an amazing tribute website, I love it :)

I know this is so many years later, but does anyone know if this play is ever coming back to the stage? The reviews and snippets I've seen look amazing.

Thanks

Martin
