John Mortimer’s THE DOCK BRIEF, produced and directed by Michael Hasted with Alan “Tweedy” Digweed and Mark Hyde opened in the Studio of the Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham on 14th October 2014 and played eight sell-out performances.
“. . . it heightened the comedy in a way that kept the laughs coming in one of the most entertaining evenings I’ve spent in the theatre of recent times….Fabulous.” Cotswold Life
“. . . an extraordinary and unlikely double-act not unlike Laurel and Hardy which I strongly recommend you savour. . . Director Michael Hasted has injected this 1950s revival with great pace and movement on a small rostrum stage. Definitely worth a ringside seat.” StageTalk Magazine
“And Tweedy’s clowning skills are used to perfection. With just a change in expression and the odd use of a towel as a prop, he becomes these other people instantly. As the flights of fantastic oratory for Morganhall escalate towards the interval the physical counterpoint from Tweedy threatened to bring complete hysteria to the sell-out crowd.” Gloucestershire Echo
