The UK tour of the first ever stage production of the classic 1970s TV comedy, Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em has had extra dates added due to popular demand.
New names have been added to the cast. Moray Treadwell, David Shaw-Parker and Chris Keily join the previously announced Joe Pasquale as the loveable but accident-prone Frank Spencer, Sarah Earnshaw as his long-suffering wife Betty and Susie Blake as his disapproving mother-in- law, Mrs Fisher.
The UK Tour of Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em will open at the Wyvern Theatre, Swindon in February. The stage adaptation is written and directed by Guy Unsworth, based on the original TV series by Raymond Allen.
Moray Treadwell most recently appeared in the national tour of Hysteria for London Classic Theatre Company. Other theatre included The Railway Children (King’s Cross Theatre).
David Shaw-Parker began his career at the Royal Shakespeare Company, appearing in over 25 productions for them. His other theatre credits include Leo Fairchild in Lady in The Van (Bath Theatre Royal), Trevor Nunn’s productions of My Fair Lady (National Theatre and Theatre Royal Drury Lane), Acorn Antiques (West End), and Lucy Bailey’s production of Titus Andronicus (The Globe).
Chris Keily’s most recent theatre credits include Artie Goldberg in Yank! (Charing Cross Theatre and Hope Mill Theatre), Louis Harvey in The Lady Killers (Theatre Royal Windsor), Artie in Sunset Boulevard (Yvonne Arnaud Theatre) and Freddy in Pygmalion (Theatre Royal Windsor).
