Jiggery Pokery
An Homage To Charles Hawtrey – A True English Eccentric

A provocative, funny and moving show inspired by the double-life and lonely death of Charles Hawtrey. Famous for his many appearances in the Carry On films, his unique physicality and distinctive voice made him one of Britain’s best loved comedy actors – but that was only part of the story.

Interweaving episodes from his life, Jiggery Pokery intimately explores the two worlds of Hawtrey’s life – on-screen and off – and how his personas in each could not have been more different.

Well known for her roles with Kneehigh and Told By an Idiot, Amanda Lawrence is directed by Paul Hunter (Told by an Idiot, Young Vic and RSC) in this intimate exploration of a true English eccentric.

‘Amanda Lawrence is a fabulously funny clown’ Independent on Sunday
