Laugh and Let Die actor Pete Gibson – who our murder mystery sleuths might recognise as boy detective Siegfried Seven or solicitor Tristan Mee – is about to tread the boards as ELVIS PRESLEY!
Pete will play a very special version of The King in a political play called, “Powerhouse Town” which visits Liverpool and Manchester in July.
His character is in fact a taxi driver negotiating a serious illness who dons an Elvis costume to cheer up patients in the ward he also attends.
As befitting the star of Las Vegas, he is also to be seen at the gaming machines – though in his case at a Manchester bookies!
And this becomes the setting for a murder – though on this occasion, there is no competition to find out whodunit.
“Being in “Powerhouse Town” is very different from entertaining our wonderful hen parties and audiences at our six actor shows, but I do believe they’ll find this earthy, darkly funny play equally entertaining and thought-provoking” said Pete.
The Powerhouse Town polemic features top acting talent from across the North and also stars Ann Brown, who has made popular past appearances with Laugh and Let Die. Aside from playing betting shop manager Eileen, Ann will also be producing the show.
