Ying Tong (a walk with The Goons) by Roy Smiles takes to The Playhouse from Tues 27 to Sat 31 March 2018
Spike Milligan is planning his escape – the pressure to write for The Goon Show has driven him to a mental institution. After writing to the British Museum to “get his marbles back”, he begins to lose what’s left of his grip on reality and threatens to kill all The Goons. Will fellow Goons Harry Secombe and Peter Sellers be able to stop him?
Roy Smiles’ script features 4 actors playing numerous roles, including institution wardens, doctors and psychiatrists, as well as the iconic Goons themselves.
The Playhouse cast, being directed by Corinna Leeder as she celebrates 30 years of association with the group, features Stewart Magrath as Spike Milligan, Graham Lee as Peter Sellers, John Myhill as Harry Secombe and Kevin Evans as Wallace Greenslade.
