Written and Performed by Ewan Wardrop

Formby follows George Formby's rise from awkward stable boy to one of Britain's biggest stars. In a unique one-man performance Ewan Wardrop plays the role of Formby as well as the key characters involved in this fascinating slice of his life. Featuring many of Formby's unique and hilarious songs, brilliantly recreated by Wardrop on the ukulele. It is not only a celebration of a great performer, but a funny, touching, and thoughtful look at the life of an essentially ordinary man with an extraordinary talent.
