They say all political careers end in tears. In Old Bedalian Gyles Brandreth’s case it’s tears of laughter as the actor, author, One Show reporter, former MP and government whip comes to Bridport with his new one-man show Break a Leg! – a celebration of all things theatrical, with a special Bedalian twist. This is Brandreth unleashed on the stars he’s known and the theatre stories that have made him laugh – and, occasionally, cry.
Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), Just a Minute regular Gyles delivers a happy hour of wisdom, high drama, low comedy, and hilarious name-dropping – running from Oscar Wilde (Bedalian parent) to Laurence Olivier and beyond.
