About the Show

Bill Snibson, a Lambeth costermonger, is revealed to be the new Earl of Hareford and his newly-discovered

aristocratic relations are horrified. Bringing him to the Hareford Hall, they attempt to educate Bill into the ways of the gentry and to separate him from his cockney girlfriend Sally. The result? Chaos of the most comical kind!

With a host of hilarious characters, witty one-liners and several toe-tapping, uplifting songs (including the

famous "Lambeth Walk", "The Sun Has Got His Hat On" and "Leaning on a Lamp Post") ME AND MY GIRL is a

sublime and sunny treat for all fans of musical comedy!

This version of the show, with its revised book by Stephen Fry, was first presented at the Leicester Haymarket Theatre in 1985 in a hugely popular production starring Robert Lindsay and Emma Thompson which later transferred to the Adelphi Theatre in London where it enjoyed an extremely long and successful run.

Me and My Girl premiered on Broadway at the Marquis Theatre in New York City on August 10, 1986. It was

directed by Mike Ockrent and choreographed by Gillian Gregory.
