HALE and Pace comedian and actor Norman Pace is to take a leading role in the UK tour of the National Theatre's award-winning comedy One Man, Two Guvnors, which visits His Majesty's Theatre in Aberdeen in October.
He'll play Charlie Clench alongside Gavin Spokes in the central role of lovable chancer Francis Henshall with Emma Barton – famed for her role as Honey Mitchell in Eastenders – and Jasmyn Banks, who played Alice Branning in the soap.
Other cast members include Alicia Davies, Michael Dylan, Derek Elroy, Edward Hancock and Patrick Warner.
He takes over the role of Charlie Clench from former Eastenders star Shaun Williamson on October 6.
A glorious celebration of British comedy – a laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners – Nicholas Hytner's five-star production tells the hilarious story of Francis Henshall who, fired from his skiffle band, becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, who is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother who's been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.
Seen and enjoyed by over a million people worldwide, One Man, Two Guvnors runs for a week at His Majesty's Theatre from Monday, October 13.
