End Of The Pier is a powerful new black comedy from acclaimed writer Danny Robins starring Les Dennis as a former comedy presenter and national treasure thrust back into the limelight... unwillingly.

Dates and Time: Wed 11 Jul - Sat 11 Aug at 19:30, Thu and Sat Matinees at 15:00.

"I used to dream of people remembering my jokes. Now I just wish they’d forget."

Bobby was once a household name with 20 million TV viewers – but now the laughter has faded. Resigned to a life of solitude and second-rate panto performances, his glory days are behind him. When Michael, the nation’s favourite comedian, arrives at his door asking for help to save his career, Bobby is unwillingly thrown into the limelight once again. A dark question lurks behind the laughs: What if, inside, you’re not the person everyone thinks you are?

Les Dennis has had an extensive TV career and is well known for his role in Coronation Street and as the host of Family Fortunes. Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners, Dad's Army) soap star Nitin Ganatra and Tala Gouveia star alongside.

"All comedy needs victims, Bobby. It was just your turn"
