Kenneth Williams will be returning to the West End stage in November in a new comedy called My Fat Friend. Attractive and very slim Jennie Linden plays the fat friend of the title, writes Michael Owen.

The comedy is a first play by Charles Laurence. Rehearsals started in London on 16th October. The director is Eric Thompson, who also staged two current West End hits — Time and Time Again and Journey’s End.

The production will be premiered at Brighton before opening in an as yet unspecified London theatre in mid-November.

Welcome back, Kenneth. Gay News will be reviewing the play when it reaches London, but would welcome a review from any Brighton reader who manages to see My Fat Friend in Brighton.
