Rough for Theatre I & II at Arts Theatre 10 - 15 July 2007 with Steve Harley & Mike Bennett

Rough for Theatre I & II by Samuel Beckett, will be at the Arts Theatre from 10 to 15 July 2007 - starring Steve Harley & Mike Bennett.

It is directed by Gari Jones, designed by Sara Perks with lighting by Linda Edwards.

'Rough for Theatre I & II' are a pair of tragi-comedies that embrace suitably unlikely themes: In the first play a blind man and a cripple are brought together purely by circumstance. In the second, a pair of bureaucrats decide the fate of an anonymous third party.

Steve Harley is best known as front man with the legendary rock group, Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel. Their 1975 single 'Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me)', reached Number 1 in the UK and many European countries.

Mike Bennett's theatre credits include playing Tumnus in 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' (Sadlers Wells) and Autolicus in 'Winter's Tale' (Bloombsbury Theatre). As well as writing material for Frankie Howerd and The Muppets, Mike's numerous plays and musicals include 'Saftey in Numbers' (Arts Theatre) 'Sharp Practice' (Wimbledon Theatre) 'Seaside Romp' (Blackpool Grand Theatre) and the musical 'All Cloned Up' (Kings Head/Bloombsbury). As a record producer Mike has gained 10 gold discs working with the likes of The Fall, The Specials, Gregory Issacs, Alabama 3, E.L.P and Ian Brown, for whom he co wrote 'Golden Gaze'.
