Young Ones star Nigel bringing brand new comedy to Coventry

Coventry Editorial 4th Aug, 2021

BRITISH comedy legend Nigel Planer brings his latest play to The Albany Theatre, Coventry this September.

Nigel shot to fame by playing Neil, the unlucky hippy in the BBC comedy, The Young Ones alongside Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson.

He went on to star in the original casts of West End musicals such as We will Rock You, Wicked and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. He is also the winner of a Brit award as well as being nominated for Olivier and Bafta awards.

Playwright and award winning actor Nigel Planer.

His latest play is called All Above Board and will premiere in Merseyside in August and then tour the UK, coming to The Albany on September 7-8.

And Nigel himself will be hosting a Q&A on Tuesday, September 7 at 6pm ahead of the performance which will be open to all ticketholders for any of the three shows at The Albany.

Audience members will be able to can ask Nigel about his time as Neil in The Young Ones, his West End career or how he beat Roland Rat and Mel Brooks to a Brit Award!

All Above Board sees an unlikely bunch of modern-day do-gooders try to make the world a better place, but they lose the plot, their morals and even their clothes in all the best traditions of classic British farce. It guarantees lots of laughs.

Tickets for the show, including entry to the Q&A with Nigel can be bought at https://www.albanytheatre.co.uk/shows/all-above-board/
