IT’S surely out of this world that Malvern Theatres will be a stop for Vulcan 7, starring Adrian Edmondson and Nigel Planer.

A spoof on the world of the fantasy movie opens at the venue on October 29, as part of a national tour.

British actor-comedians Adrian Edmondson and Nigel Planer rose to fame in TV sitcoms The Comic Strip Presents… and the BRIT award-winning cult classic The Young Ones, and they have performed together in Filthy, Rich and Catflap and in the spoof band, Bad News.

A spokesman said: “In their latest comedy Vulcan 7 they will co-star as former drama students, Gary Savage and Hugh Delavois, one a plodding actor, the other a struggling Hollywood star, both in their 60s who are reunited on Icelandic wasteland, on the set of a fantasy movie.

“The cast is completed by Lois Chimimba who stars as film runner, Leela.”

The spokesman added: “Hugh has landed the role of Vulcan’s butler and he’s making his seventh film for the franchise. Gary is a one-time Hollywood A-lister playing a guest monster with four hours in make-up and one word in the script. Sparks fly inside the trailer as old wounds are opened. Leela, a runner, attempts to keep the peace, but outside the trailer things are not going to plan either: the director’s gone AWOL, the catering truck’s on the wrong side of a ravine, and the volcanic activity is growing more lively by the minute…”

Adrian Edmondson (Gary Savage) is well known for his role in TV sitcom Bottom which he wrote and starred in with Rik Mayall. Other television credits include Jonathan Creek, Blackadder and the BBC adaptation of War and Peace. On stage he has appeared in The Rocky Horror Show in the West End and Twelfth Night at the RSC. Film credits include Captain Peavey in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Nigel Planer (Hugh Delavois) has worked extensively in the West End with leading roles in original productions Evita, Chicago, We Will Rock You, Wicked, Hairspray, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for which he received an Olivier Award nomination.

Vulcan 7 will appear at Malvern Theatres from October 29 to November 3. Tickets: 01684 892277.
