The team that brought you The Play What I Wrote (Sean Foley and Hamish McColl, aka The Right Size) now present the World premiere of their new comedy – the magic spectacular Ducktastic!, which transfers from Theatre Royal Newcastle. As always with their work, the plot is not straightforward, but it is inspired by the Las Vegas illusionists Siegfried and Roy, only on a more modest scale, using ducks instead of Siberian tigers. In Ducktastic!, world famous illusionist Christopher Ursula Sassoon, after an accident with an emu, loses his license to perform in Las Vegas. He teams up with Roy de La Rue, a pet shop proprietor from Portsmouth, to form Sassoon and Roy and put on a new West End show. Directed by Kenneth Branagh and produced by David Pugh.
