Comedians Jack Dee, Doon MacKichan and Ben Miller, impressionist Alistair McGowan and singer Charlotte Page are among the cast taking part in a charity performance of Tony Hawk’s musical Midlife Cowboy, with Graham Norton hosting the event.
The show, which follows the fortunes of a cowboy club based in Swindon, was first performed by Hawks and Miller (best-known as half of the comedy double act Armstrong and Miller) at the Edinburgh Festival, where it received a ‘Perrier Pick of The Fringe’ award. Originally called The Heartbreak Kid, it has now been reworked and retitled for its 2016 revival.
The event is being organised in association with the UK charity Child Aid to raise funds for The Tony Hawks Centre for children with cerebral palsy in Chisinau, Moldova.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to see the creative process at work in a staged read-through, and help raise money for disadvantaged children” says Hawks.
