The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy became an instant classic on its launch as a radio series. Now Douglas Adams's immortal creation explodes back into life in this ground-breaking new stage production - a radio show like you never saw before - in surround sound, packed with laughter, really wild sound effects and drinks with extremely silly names.
Led by Simon Jones as Arthur Dent, Hitchhiker's favourites from the legendary Radio and TV casts are re-united for these live performances, bringing to life the characters written for them in highlights from the entire Hitchhiker's Saga. They are joined on stage by a VIP Guest Voice Of The Book at each venue (Phill Jupitus, Jon Culshaw, Andrew Sachs, John Challis, Hugh Dennis, John Lloyd and Terry Jones are amongst the guest names), and supporting actors from Hitchhiker's in all its phases.
Featuring the original cast, Hitchhiker's is directed by Dirk Maggs, Douglas Adams's choice to conclude the narrative in its original medium, 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Radio Show ... Live!' is a comedy adventure which will introduce newcomers of all ages to Vogons, Babel Fish, Marvin the Paranoid Android and allow them to explore the unique and hilarious Whole General Mish Mash According To Douglas Adams.
Whatever else you do this year, make sure you know where your towel is...
