Salida Productions Present
Written and performed by Ewan Wardrop
Directed and co-devised by Ed Hughes
“Turned out nice again hasn’t it?”
Formby charts George Formby’s rise from awkward stable boy to one of Britain’s biggest stars. In a one-man performance Ewan Wardrop (Complicite and Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake) brings to life Formby, his wife Beryl and all the characters involved in his remarkable life. The play has already played to critical acclaim in Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012. Formby is a new play written by Ewan Wardrop and co-devised and directed by Co-Artistic Director of Salida Productions Ed Hughes. It is not only a celebration of one of Britain’s greatest performers, but a funny, touching and thoughtful look at the life of an essentially ordinary man with an extraordinary talent.
