Talented two in tropical treat

A TROPICAL tale of street singing, slums and rum is coming to West Yorkshire Playhouse, writes Leon Zadok.

Mustapha Matura's Rum and Coca Cola is actor Don Warrington's first foray into directing. Famous for his role in seventies sitcom Rising Damp and his not-so-fancy footwork in Strictly Come Dancing, his talented cast include Footballers Wives star Marcel McCalla, who plays rookie street singer Slim.

The play sees ageing beach singer Professor, played by Victor Romero Evans, take his protege Slim, a young street boy, on a journey through friendship, hardship, and rum.
