Danny DeVito & Richard Griffiths star in this classic Neil Simon comedy.

Closed 26 Jul 2012

A PITCH-PERFECT PRODUCTION

With star casting and a barrelful of laughs, The Sunshine Boys is back in the West End. This classic comedy by Neil Simon, one of America's most successful playwrights, is set in the early days of TV and sees the reunion of two cantankerous comedians who, amidst rivalry and resentment, hate to admit they might actually rely on each other.

WHO ARE THE SUNSHINE BOYS AND WHAT?S THEIR STORY?

Quirky comedians Willie Clark and Al Lewis broke up their old vaudeville double act after a 43-year partnership over petty things and haven't spoken to each other since. Now, eleven years later, the stubborn pair is grudgingly brought back together by a TV special on the history of comedy. But for two bitter grouches, with whopping egos and reignited rivalry, it's difficult enough being in the same room, let alone performing together again.
