Based on his hit 80s TV series, ‘Duty Free’, writer Eric Chappell takes us back to Marbella to reunite the two couples in his farcical play, ‘Last of the Duty Free’. This fast-paced comedy which provides the next instalment of the holidaymakers’ antics is to be performed at the Sheffield Library Theatre on the 21st-24th November.
Regularly attracting 12 million viewers, the TV comedy starred popular South Yorkshire actor, Keith Barron. Born in Mexborough, he began his career at the Sheffield Playhouse before finding fame in ‘The Odd Man’ in the 1960s. Barron was a regular face on British television for decades, however his role of David Pearce in ‘Duty Free’ is often the most remembered and loved by his fans. Sadly, Keith Barron passed away last year, prompting the Denys Edwards Players to stage ‘Last of the Duty Free’ in his home county as a fitting tribute.
Richard Bevan takes on the lively role of David with great energy and aplomb, enjoying the opportunity to showcase his talent for comedy! He is joined by a sterling cast of familiar faces on the Sheffield theatre scene and expertly directed by Chesterfield-based, Susan McCormick. This is a theatrical revival not to be missed!
