Del Boy and Rodney are moving from Peckham to the West End!
Britain's most loved sitcom Only Fools and Horses is slated to make its West End debut at Theatre Royal Haymarket in early 2019 (reportedly February or March, though details have yet to be finalised).
Only Fools and Horses centred around Del Boy Trotter, an ambitious market trader from Peckham who was constantly cooking up schemes to make it rich. Running consecutively for a decade from 1981-1991 and running sporadic Christmas specials through 2003, Only Fools and Horses was voted Britain’s most popular sitcom in a 2003 BBC poll. An episode of Only Fools and Horses still hold the record for the most watched episode of a British sitcom of all time with a viewership of over 24 million.
The show’s creator and sole writer John Sullivan died in 2011 but it has been reported that his son Jim Sullivan has written the upcoming musical with comedian Paul Whitehouse. Though the new show is set to feature beloved characters Del Boy and Rodney we know that the original actors, Nicholas Lyndhurst and David Jason, will not be reprising their roles.
