Sean Foley and Hamish McColl (right) are the Morecambe and Wise de nos jours. Better known as The Right Size, they stormed Edinburgh in 1997 and this year they are lending their merry lunacy to a rarely staged Berthold Brecht comedy, Mr Puntila and His Man Matti. If that were not enough, the two are joined on stage by a slap-bang crew of comic actors, including the glorious Hayley Carmichael from Told by an Idiot. To add to this heady mix, the show is co-produced by the Almeida and directed by the disgracefully gifted Kathryn Hunter of Theatre de Complicite. It should all add up to an evening to remember.
