4 actors take on 45 roles in a brand new stage adaptation which

returns to the King’s Head Theatre due to popular demand

“Great fun.... With his attempts to be somebody, this nobody

is highly entertaining.” TimeOut

Rough Haired Pointer transform George and Weedon

Grossmith’s monologue into a fast-moving theatrical spectacle,

starring... a complete nobody – Charles Pooter, an average

Victorian city clerk. With the help of four actors playing forty-five characters, Rough Haired Pointer bring this intensely

lovable celebration of every day’s small joys and frustrations to

vivid life. Come, laugh at Pooter – which we guarantee you will –

but isn’t he, really, just a bit like you?

” When you have a quarter of actors so good at this

type of comedy you would have to be a self-important nobody to

grumble... The comic Victorian novel receives a riotous post-modern makeover with hilarious results from a crack cast of four.”

The Stage


20 January - 14 February

After huge success in Dublin, Cape Town, Brighton and

Edinburgh, and a sell-out Summer season at The King's Head

in August, the sexy South African returns for a limited season

from January.

The play is a edgy, fast paced and visceral exploration of male

sexuality. It follows three intertwining story lines: an acting

instructor as he coaches a young student through the delivery of

Shakespearian Sonnets, childhood friends discovering sex

and sexuality, and a couple who have grown apart sexually.

“This beautiful play is an engrossing insight into two gay men

and how their relationship develops from school children with

the twists and turns that puberty and lust create.”
The British Theatre Guide

“Between ranks as one of the best theatre experiences I’ve ever

had, and one I could not stop discussing for hours after.”
