Watford Palace Theatre Presents

Elton John's Glasses

By David Farr Directed by Psyche Stott Designed by Ruari Murchison Lighting Designer Zoe Spurr Sound Designer Nick John Williams

It’s 1996 and two brothers are about to meet for the first time in years.

Dan is chasing his dream of musical stardom, and isn’t going to let the odd hiccup get in his way. Like having no singer. And no instruments.

Bill is having his own personal crisis. With only a VCR for company, he broods over the death of Watford FC’s hopes of glory at the infamous 1984 Cup Final - all thanks to a certain notorious pair of glasses...

The timing of Dan’s arrival couldn’t be worse as Bill is just about to welcome his regular match day visitor Julie. Throw in Amy - a young girl after a kickabout on the street - and the farcical chaos quickly unwinds...

A Watford comedy about sibling rivalry, football and unlikely friendships. From the writer of the BBC hit The Night Manager.

Suitable for ages: 14+
