Larry Parks is a small-time actor in Hollywood 'B' pictures when he hears that there is to be a big budget movie about the legendary entertainer Al Jolson. He grabs the chance with both hands and ends up playing his idol in The Jolson Story, earning an Oscar nomination for his performance. But Larry Parks' fall is as spectacular as his rise.

The Other Jolson tells Parks' compelling story with comedy, drama and lots of Al Jolson's great songs.

Stefan Pejic stars in this sparkling play from the writer of Taffy Shakespeare, The Late Marilyn Monroe and Hitch. First performed in 2017 it returns to our Arts Wing following an acclaimed tour.

"Stefan Pejic is superb in this compelling and thoroughly enjoyable play." - South Wales Evening Post.
