April 26th brings us act one of Deadlock, a new comedy thriller by Peter Vincent and Barry Cryer. PV needs no introduction to P-P members. He's got a radio sitcom starring Ronnie Corbett coming up on Radio4 before the month is out, has written for Dave Allen, the Two Ronnies, Frankie Howerd, Bruce Forsyth, Les Dawson, Ben Elton ( Ben Elton?? )and many, many more. Check him out.

For that matter Barry Cryer doesn't need much of an introduction either. I guess he's currently most known as a panellist on "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue" but he's got a record as distinguished as PV's. So, PV and BC together again - this is history in the making. It's a bit like Led Zeppelin reforming for the O2 gig a year and half ago. Only louder.

So, act one on Monday. I tried to persuade them to do the whole thing, but then it was gently pointed out to me that it is quite long. And hey, if you want to see it all, you'll just have to wait for it to come to a theatre near you. Which it surely will.

Monday, 7.45, at the Green Man.
