Steve Huison to perform in Dumb Show

Steve Huison is a man of many talents. As well as being an international film star as Lomper in The Full Monty, he's a talented artist, and Fat Brenda's alter ego. And now he'll be starring in the Oldham Coliseum Theatre in Dumb Show this June.

Yes, the man who baked his way into our hearts as Eddie Windass on Coronation Street, actor Steve Huison will be playing Barry in Dumb Show - Joe Penhall’s fierce satire on the relationship between the morality of the press and the ethics of celebrity culture.

Barry - star of Saturday night TV – isn’t getting the ratings he used to. When two private bankers come knocking on his dressing room door with a proposition complete with a healthy fee it looks like his troubles might be over. This quick fix turns out to have one big catch; a hidden camera. With the press wanting to get every last juicy detail from one of Britain’s best known personalities they go to extreme measures to get their scoop.

Tapping right into the current question of press morality and the ethics of celebrity culture, Dumb Show is about share with you a very private story.

Steve will be starring alongside Kate Coogan and Leigh Symonds in Dumb Show. The play opens at the Grange Arts Centre from 12 – 30 June 2012. Tickets can be booked by calling the box office on 0161 624 2829 or online at www.coliseum.org.uk
