Directed by Caroline Jay Ranger, the musical will be set in Peckham in 1989 as Del Boy sets out to find love, while Rodney and Cassandra are preparing to get married, Boycie and Marlene are giving parenthood one final shot, and Grandad takes time to take stock of his life.
The Only Fools and Horses musical will feature the show’s original theme song, which was written by Chas & Dave, as well as most of the show’s popular characters, including Trigger, Raquel, Denzil, Mickey Pearce, Mike the Barman and the dreaded Driscoll Brothers.
Announcing the West End musical, Paul Whitehouse said: “This was the last project that John Sullivan was working on when he died – he was just starting to develop Only Fools as a musical – so when writing it, Jim and I have remained very faithful to the feel and scripts of the TV series, but also highlight some contemporary issues.
We are very conscious of the Only Fools legacy and that it’s so fondly remembered by people of almost all ages, so we’ve tried to incorporate everyone’s favourite moments from the TV shows and of course, all the great characters – but this time it’s with songs.”
