Following a sold-out and critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh festival Fringe, Luke Kempner (Les Misérables, Spitting Image: Idiots Assemble) is bringing his one-man show Gritty Police Drama: A One Man Musical to Soho Theatre in London.
The show will run from 23 to 27 April 2024.
Luke Kempner is a comedian, impressionist, podcaster and West End performer. He is currently starring in Les Miserables at the West End’s Sondheim Theatre, playing Monsieur Thenardier.
Last year saw Luke voice over 30 puppets in the West End production of Spitting Image: Idiots Assemble, including King Charles, Prince Harry, Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, Jurgen Klopp and many more.
Britain loves a gritty police drama but what about one that features all of the detectives from your favourite shows, plus voices of the world’s biggest celebrities and on top of all of that: it’s a musical?!
Gritty Police Drama promises to be Line of Duty meets Happy Valley meets Match of the Day meets The Traitors meets the West End! – and all done by Luke Kempner.
The show was widely praised in Edinburgh, with The Telegraph’s Dominic Cavendish saying “With at least one good gag a minute as well as those voices, this is his most accomplished show since his Downton Abbey debut”.
