|Elsie Tanner back on the|
cobbles in Corrie!
Last night, in Liverpool, the Narrator was Ken Morley (Reg Holdsworth). Now, I have to confess that Reg wasn't one of my favourite Corrie characters but Ken did a great job in play - remember that the Narrator is the actor rather than the character so he played it as Ken rather than Reg.
The strength of this new version is that it is much pacier than the original and you move from very funny scenes to some very touching ones (Hilda coming back from the hospital with Stan's things for example) which work on two levels - the first is that the actors in the play are so good but on a second level we also remember the original on-screen versions of these classic scenes.
It is a must-see and worth travelling for!
The narrators will be: Bromley, Bath, Woking, Birmingham, Nottingham, Darlington, Northampton - Ken Morley / Sheffield, Ipswich, Stoke, Brighton and Hull - Gaynor Faye / Southampton, Cardiff, Bradford, Malvern - Roy Barraclough MBE.
