Had the pleasure of working with this guy last year on Paul Brook’s stage adaptation of his book “The Little Book of Prison” for Lynchpin’s Scriptease.

AN AUDIENCE WITH… BARRY AND BOB CRYER
Fri 7th February 2014 2pm
Barry Cryer is one of our best-loved writers and comedians. His extraordinary career has involved writing for the world’s greatest funny men including Dave Allen, Stanley Baxter, Jack Benny, George Burns,Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson, Dick Emery, Bruce Forsyth, David Frost, Bob Hope, Frankie Howerd, Spike Milligan, The Two Ronnies and Morecambe and Wise. He’s also a regular panellist on I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Cluefor Radio 4. Now, together with his son, the actor and writer Bob Cryer, Barry has created Mrs Hudson’s Diaries, a hilarious novel that reimagines the Sherlock Holmes stories from the point of view of the famous landlady. They reveal a portrait of life below stairs at 221b Baker Street that is by turns silly, slapstick and sentimental. This is your opportunity to meet Barry and Bob, discover something of their partnership and their work and hear more about the unsung heroine of the Sherlock stories. After all, behind every great man there is usually an even greater woman – this time she’s demanding rent! Join Barry and Bob afterwards in the bar for tea and cake and enjoy an afternoon replete with relish, mustard and no small amount of dropped eaves.
Tickets £30 The restaurant is open from 12 noon for lunch. Please make your reservation with the box office or online.
