If you are lucky enough to be in Edinburgh this August for the world-renowned festival then do check out Jamie Rees in the wonderful tribute to Carry On legend Charles Hawtrey. Entitled ‘Oh Hello', the Torch Theatre show has been touring the country ahead of its month long residency in the Scottish capital.
Bubbly, energetic and extremely funny Charles Hawtrey was one of the best known comedy actors of the 40s, 50s and 60s. Following a sell-out run at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and unanimous critical acclaim Jamie Rees returns in this ‘tour-de-force’ performance as one of the leading lights of the Carry On film franchise.
See him regale stories of 50 years in the film industry working with the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and starring in the films including The Ghost of St Micheal’s, Passport to Pimlico and a total of 21 Carry Ons. Hear of his hilarious run-ins with Kenneth Williams and his disdain of the Carry On producers as well as a complex relationship with his senile mother.
Oh Hello! first opened in 2014 and it has since gone on to perform at venues across the UK selling out every show and receiving four and five star reviews along the way.
Don’t miss your last chance to see this funny and poignant story about a true comedy legend.
