Drop The Dead Donkey: The Reawakening! tour dates and venues

30 years since the launch of the trailblazing, smash-hit TV series, the Globelink News team are back, and now live on stage for the very first time.

The stage show is written by the same award-winning writing team as the original hit sitcom Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin.

The pair said: “We’re overjoyed to be working again with the original cast of Drop The Dead Donkey, after a brief hiatus of about 30 years. It’s going to be hugely enjoyable to watch those 7 funny, flawed characters from Globelink News being plunged into the cutthroat world of modern 24-hour news gathering and trying to navigate their way through the daily chaos of social media, fake news, and Interim Prime Ministers.”

Drop The Dead Donkey: The Reawakening! is directed by Lindsay Posner, and designed by Peter McKintosh, with lighting designs by Peter Mumford.
