This funny and moving drama probes the turbulent relationship between two performers credited with reinventing modern British satire. Tall, handsome, brilliantly glib Peter Cook and undersized musical prodigy Dudley Moore met as undergraduates in 1960 and became international stars as half of the legendary comedy revue Beyond the Fringe. That was the beginning of a riotously funny double act that redefined the art of comedy. But as they reveled in their perfectly matched comic genius in public, in private their collaboration roiled with tension and resentment. Traveling from London’s West End to Broadway and Hollywood to Peter’s tragic death in 1995, this is their story.
Starring Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill, Danny Deckchair) in a BAFTA Award-winning performance as Peter Cook and Aidan McArdle (Ella Enchanted) as Dudley Moore. "Two magnetic star turns" —The Times (U.K.)
