Star Wars and Harry Potter actor Warwick Davis brings his new comedy to the Belgrade Theatre.
Britain’s most famous short actor best-known for his roles in Willow, Star Wars and the Harry Potter films is at the Belgrade Theatre in the classic comedy, See How They Run, from Monday until Saturday March 8. Warwick will be accompanied by his newly formed theatre company, The Reduced Height Theatre Company, a cast of actors entirely under four feet tall.
With a career spanning nearly three decades, much-loved actor Warwick Davis has played numerous roles in blockbuster films and most recently has become a household name through his TV appearances in Doctor Who and Ricky Gervais comedies Life’s Too Short and An Idiot Abroad 3.
Warwick said: “The formation of The Reduced Height Theatre Company is a dream realised for me. As a short actor, I am not always afforded the same professional opportunities as my taller colleagues. This new venture will tip the balance in favour of myself and the other talented short actors in the UK. In these times of equality and diversity, this will be a unique, bold and empowering journey.”
In the play, married couple Penelope and Reverend Lionel Toop are paid a visit by a whole host of different characters from the village including Lance Corporal Clive Winten who borrows a suit from Lionel, Humphrey the Bishop of Lax and a fleeting visit from a Russian spy who steels the reverend’s clothes as a disguise. When a police officer arrives at the scene, he finds them all inexplicably dressed as clergy with no way of determining the Russian spy among them.
