The League of Gentlemen returns to the stage for its first UK tour in more than 12 years with their new live show The League of Gentlemen Live Again. It sees BAFTA Award-winning comedy legends Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and Jeremy Dyson bring their dark and unhinged fictional village of Royston Vasey to theatres and arenas across the country. The critically acclaimed black comedy, which originally ran from 1999-2002 on BBC 2, also returns to our television screens this Christmas. The cast say, “The League of Gentlemen started as a live show over 20 years ago and in many ways performing in front of an audience gives us the biggest thrill of all. We’re overjoyed to be taking the citizens of Royston Vasey on a road-trip and can’t wait to see all the wonderful local places in our increasingly local country. Plus, we’d already gone to the trouble of getting the costumes and learning the voices again for the TV show, so we thought why not? Something to do, isn’t it?”
