A soap star is set to perform at a town theatre in his one-man, award-winning comedy.

Andrew Lancel, who is also known for his acting on Coronation Street and The Bill, stars as an English teacher on a journey in the bittersweet comedy from award-winning writer Jonathan Harvey.

Fresh from its sell-out premiere at Liverpool Theatre Festival and Northern tour, Swan Song is a highly-acclaimed show from multi award-winning writer Jonathan Harvey (Beautiful Thing, Gimme Gimme Gimme) and BAFTA award-winning director Noreen Kershaw (Call The Midwife, Coronation Street) which is coming to Ulverston for two nights only ahead of its London run.

It’s Liverpool, 1997. The world is changing and in the staff room, gay, 40-something English teacher Dave Titswell finds that not all change is welcome.

He has a crush, but life, love, and work are never straightforward.

Will a school trip to The Lakes change things for the better, or make things decidedly worse?

Swan Song aims to make the audience laugh, but equally pull at the heartstrings.

The performances will be held on Friday, November 19 and Saturday, November 20 from 7.30pm.
