The Sunshine Boys centres on a one-time vaudevillian double-act, “Lewis and Clark” who haven’t spoken to each other in years.
It’s 1972 in New York, and CBS invite the comedy duo to be re-united for a nostalgic History of Comedy TV-special.
Forced together again, old rivalry resurfaces, tempers flare and side-splitting scenes unfold as they prepare to take centre stage for one last time.
Penned by one of America's most prolific writers- writer of more than 30 plays and over 20 screenplays, and recipient of more Tony Award nominations than any other writer in history- THE SUNSHINE BOYS is regarded as Neil Simon's greatest work.
Staged on the beautifully refurbished Epstein Theatre, a former Music Hall and Vaudeville stage, in its centenary year, Simon's comic tour-de-force made its Liverpool debut in Summer, 2013, joining Life In Theatre's smash-hit musical, THE LAST 5 YEARS, in a Broadway double bill!
