Miles Jupp and Justin Edwards led The Lavender Hill Mob to continue UK tour in 2023

Comedy duo Miles Jupp and Justin Edwards will continue their comedy caper in 2023!

The critically acclaimed world premiere stage adaptation of the classic Ealing Comedy, The Lavender Hill Mob (‘the greatest British film of all time’ – the BFI) will kick off the 2023 leg of its UK tour at the Chichester Festival Theatre on 10 January, before visiting Cambridge, Guildford, Glasgow, Bath and Truro.

The play, based on the screenplay by T.E.B. Clarke and adapted for the stage by Phil Porter, tells the story of Henry Holland, a bank clerk who dreams of stealing the gold bullion he transports each day. When he discovers that his new lodger can make Eiffel Tower paperweights out of lead, he comes up with a plan to make his dream a reality.

Directed by Tony and Olivier-nominated Jeremy Sams, the play features “performances to savour” (The Times) by acclaimed comic actors and ‘jolly and talented leads’ (Mail Online) Miles Jupp (A Very British Scandal, Mock The Week, and Why Didn’t They Ask Evans) as ‘Holland’, and Justin Edwards (The Thick of It, 1917 and The Ferryman) as ‘Pendlebury’.

The Lavender Hill Mob also stars Guy Burgess as ‘Farrow’, Tessa Churchard as ‘Lady Agnes’, John Dougall as ‘Sir Horace’, Tim Sutton as ‘Sammy’, Victoria Blunt as ‘Audrey’, Aamira Challenger as ‘Fernanda’, with Steven Rostance, Sharon Adugna and Phil Wilcocks completing the company.

The play is directed by Jeremy Sams; with design by Francis O’Connor and with Louise Shephard as associate director. Illusions and Music is by Tim Sutton; and Ginny Schiller CDG is casting director. The Lavender Hill Mob is produced by Patrick Myles, David Luff and Act Productions, Alexander “Sandy” Marshall in association with Tulchin Bartner Productions and Weird Sisters Productions.
