A Bridge Over Troubled Lager at Court Theatre

Rory McGrath and Philip Pope
Rory McGrath and Philip Pope

Following a hugely successful run at this year’s Edinburgh Fring Festival, TV’s Rory McGrath and his musical partner Philip Pope are hitting Tring’s Court Theatre this Friday at 8pm with their hilarious musical show A Bridge Over Troubled Lager – Volume 2.

McGrath and Pope’s marriage of mirth will once again combine Rory’s sublime lyrics – a signature combination of sophistication, wryness and downright filth – with the mature elegance and artistry of Philip’s music. Expect dozens of songs, rudely interrupted by the pair’s backchat and bickering on subjects including – but not limited to – social media, pets, Scottish independence, Philip’s toe, love, marriage, Croatian pop in the 90’s and foul language. And then there’s reality TV, conservation, Schubert, heavy metal, the French, hardline Christianity and the Polish word for a mayfly. Sound a bit bizarre? It’s bound to be, but it’ll be worth it.
