Head on down to Nelson Mandela House via the West End. Les Dennis will join the Only Fools and Horses: The Musical cast this autumn, as he takes over the role of Grandad. Only Fools and Horses: The Musical now plays at Theatre Royal Haymarket to 7 Jan. 2023. Book Only Fools and Horses: The Musical tickets on London Theatre.

Dennis will play Grandad in Only Fools and Horses: The Musical from 3 October. He’s previously starred in West End productions such as Hairspray and HMS Pinafore, both at the London Coliseum.

“I am so excited to be playing Grandad… Like everyone else, I would tune in weekly to watch the hilarious exploits of the Trotters and would laugh and cry in equal measure. It was both funny and touching. Jim Sullivan and Paul Whitehouse have written a wonderful show that beautifully recreates that feel-good era of British comedy,” said Les Dennis.

Based on the BBC sitcom of the same name, Only Fools and Horses: The Musical follows Del Boy, Rodney, and the rest of the Trotter gang on their latest adventures. Tom Bennett plays Del Boy and Ryan Hutton stars as Rodney. Find out more about Only Fools and Horses television moments recreated on stage.

Only Fools and Horses: The Musical is co-written by Paul Whitehouse and Jim Sullivan, directed by Caroline Jay Ranger, and features music by John Sullivan and Chas Hodges.
