Roy Hudd to return to Solid Gold Cadillac

Act productions have announced that Roy Hudd has been cleared by his doctors to return to the stage and to his role of “Edward McKeever” in the 50th anniversary production of George S Kaufman and Howard Teichman's Solid Gold Cadillac, which opens at the Garrick Theatre 27 Sep 2004, following previews from from 22 Sep 2004, and booking to 15 Jan 2005.

It was announced earlier this week that Roy Hudd had withdrawn from the production due to exhaustion.

He has been resting since Friday 3 September and his doctors have assessed him as fit and able to return to the show on Monday 13 September, the first day of a weeks’ run at Malvern Theatre, before its West End run

Solid Gold Cadillac is directed by Ian Brown, and produced by Act Productions, in association with the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford.

The rest of the cast is: Patricia Routledge (Mrs Laura Partridge ), David Ross (Metcalfe), Lucy Briers ( Miss Shotgraven), Fred Ridgeway (Gillie), Nick Haverson (Mark Jenkins), Kate-Lynn Hocking (Miss L'Arriere).

Recently retired from the stage, she decides to use some of her new-found leisure to attend a shareholders' AGM. At first, the newly promoted senior management of the G.P.C.A. barely registers her presence. But not for long. When it comes to confirming their massive salary increases by proxy vote, they find she has some rather awkward questions to ask…
