MAKING THE GRADE
Stage productions recounting aspects of the life of Patrick McGoohan are few and far between. The "Once Upon a Time" production of the late 1980s played to very mixed reviews, but more recently the very well received "Everyman" written by and starring Brian Gorman played to audiences throughout the UK and more performances are planned for the future (watch this space).
Now in 2012 a third effort is being prepared. "Magic Number Six" is a one-act play that chronicles the fascinating relationship between Patrick McGoohan and Lew Grade before and during the making of the Prisoner TV show. Casting is well underway for the production which is due to debut later in 2012.
The play, devised and produced by Paul Gosling (left) will premiere in the Haywood Studio, The Little Theatre, Dover Street, Leicester on Wednesday 31st October through to Saturday 3rd November 2012. It will be one of a triple- bill of plays as part of the theatre's one-act festival. More details will appear here and on the production's Facebook page.
