The League of Gentlemen to return to the stage!
The League of Gentlemen are to return to the stage in 2018 for their first UK tour in over 12 years. The League of Gentlemen Live Again! will kick off in Sunderland on the 25 August 2018, featuring BAFTA winning comedy stars Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemblerton,
Mark Gatiss and Jeremy Dyson. They’ll be bringing the darkly unhinged fictional village of Royston Vasey to life in theatres and arenas across the UK.
The critically acclaimed and much-loved black comedy originally aired on BBC Two between 1999 – 2002, and is now set to return to screens for a 20 year celebration for three special episodes on the 18, 19 and 20 December 2017.
“The League of Gentlemen started as a live show over 20 years ago and in many ways performing in front of an audience gives us the biggest thrill of all,” Shearsmith, Pemlerton, Gattis and Dyson say. “We’re overjoyed to be taking the citizens of Royston Vasey on a road-trip and can’t wait to see all the wonderful local places in our increasingly local country. Plus we’d already gone to the trouble of getting the costumes and learning the voices again for the TV show so we thought why not? Something to do isn’t it?”
