Bill & Bobby (2015, Outdoor)

David Toole and Lucy Bennett peeraing behind a bath

After a night on the town two revellers awake to find themselves in a bath… Convinced that the party is not over, the two friends play a tipsy tribute to the dancing partnerships of the silver screen. 

Bill & Bobby celebrates a golden time of good old-fashioned entertainment, when dancing together and 'happily ever after' went hand in hand.

A performance that recalls the stylish partnership of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers and borrows from 1930s films with a magpie glee - Lyn Gardner, The Guardian  

Following a successful run at street arts festivals in 2015 and 2016, Bill & Bobby are back on the road and ready to dazzle audiences for summer 2018.  

Premiered at Brighton Festival in 2015
