Drop The Dead Donkey: The Reawakening comes to Milton Keynes Theatre this March

    The original cast and writers of the award-winning TV comedy Drop The Dead Donkey reunite for a brand-new stage adaptation coming to Milton Keynes Theatre from Tue 12 – Sat 16 Mar.

    30 years since the launch of the trailblazing, smash-hit TV series, Drop The Dead Donkey, the Globelink News team are back, and now live on stage for the very first time.

    Starring the original cast members Stephen Tompkinson, Neil Pearson, Susannah Doyle, Robert Duncan, Ingrid Lacey, Jeff Rawle, and Victoria Wicks, the iconic BAFTA and Emmy award-winning TV comedy is reimagined for the stage in this brand-new production which is directed by Lindsay Posner.

    Bursting with razor-sharp wit and classic British humour, this hot-off-the-press production is written by the same award-winning writing team as the original hit sitcom Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, who say: “We’re overjoyed to be working again with the original cast of Drop The Dead Donkey, after a brief hiatus of about 30 years. It’s going to be hugely enjoyable to watch those 7 funny, flawed characters from Globelink News being plunged into the cutthroat world of modern 24- hour news gathering and trying to navigate their way through the daily chaos of social media, fake news, and Interim Prime Ministers.”
