Olivier Award winner Terry Johnson directs a cast including Jessie Wallace, Gary Kemp and Ryan Molloy in this revival of Lionel Bart and Frank Norman’s 1959 musical.

Set in the 1950s, Fings Ain’t Wot They Used T’Be introduces audiences to a West End underworld of gamblers, spivs, prostitutes and Teddy boys, and tells the tale of loveable rogue Fred who comes out of prison to find he is not quite the king of the manor he once was.

Staged to celebrate Joan Littlewood’s 100th birthday year, the production has been adapted by Loserville composer Elliot Davis and features designs by William Dudley.

This show is suitable for individuals aged 13 and older.
