CHAPTER IN ASSOCIATION WITH GARETH JOHN BALE AND OWEN THOMAS
Benny Hill, the celebrated comedian, writer, actor, and singer, passed away on the 20th April 1992 at the age of 68. His body lay undiscovered in his sparsely decorated flat for two days. During these two days, and largely ostracized in the country of his birth, his television programmes were watched by an estimated one billion people around the planet.
Performed by Liam Tobin and using Benny Hill’s unique style to re-evaluate his life and work, ‘Benny’ a new play by Owen Thomas and directed by Gareth John Bale, revisits these lost two days at the end of the life of the lad himself.
