By Heathcote Williams.
Saul's first one-man show was a sell-out 14 week tour of UK theatres, including Edinburgh festival, playing Tony Hancock, 1960s Britain's best loved, famously pompous and funny "little man against the world". The show, which previewed on BBC TV, depicted the brilliance and agony of a star performer, rejected and in alcoholic despair, unable to recapture his greatness, finally taking his own life.
"A riveting performance...his beautifully observed portrayal gets to the soul of the
man...masterful and stirring...one cannot but believe that Hancock really did hold this private
funny-sad show for himself in every one of his lonely hotel rooms"
