Harry Potter star Warwick Davis comes to Bromley next month in See How They Run, featuring a cast of actors all under four feet tall.
The show opens its 12 week UK tour at The Churchill Theatre, in Bromley High Street, on February 19 and is brought to the stage by The Reduced Heigh Theatre Company.
The brainchild of Davis, the company is the first of its kind - made up entirely of short actors.
Having starred in the likes of Star Wars, Doctor Who and Life’s Too Short - written by Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais - Warwick decided to realise a “dream”.
He said: “As a short actor, I am not always afforded the same professional opportunities as my taller colleagues.
“This new venture will tip the balance in favour of myself and the other talented short actors in the UK. In these times of equality and diversity, this will be a unique, bold and empowering journey.”
See How They Run is a farce written by Phillip King and set in 1944, in which a plot of mishaps and mistaken identity cause the action to spiral out of control.
Tickets cost from £11.90 to £35.40, with the show running until Saturday, February 22. Performances start at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
