If I Catch Alphonso, Tonight! is a play about Nottingham born music hall star Billy Merson.
Billy Merson’s career spanned half a century of theatrical history, encompassing music hall, revue, musical comedy and cinema – all set against the backdrop of two world wars.
His turbulent life is the subject of this new musical play that contains extracts from sixteen of his comic songs. Recently performed to great acclaim at the Brighton Fringe Festival, it is a story of a man who constantly found himself on the ropes but always bounced back. A born entertainer, he was the inspiration of future generations of comedians, and his legacy lives on.
All tickets £10 (Concessions £8)
