THREE showbiz greats will appear in a radio play written by a local playwright.

Like a Daughter will be broadcast on Radio 4 next month and Alison Steadman, star of Abigail’s Party, all-round entertainer Roy Hudd and Sherlock actor Jonathan Aris will perform it.

It was written by Havant playwright Lucy Flannery.

She said: As a huge Sherlock fan, having Jonathan Aris in my play – Anderson in the BBC series – was thrilling.

‘To have an actor of Alison Steadman’s stature appear in something you have written can only be a humbling experience.

‘And the icing on the cake was Roy Hudd – a national treasure and comedy institution who has been making people laugh for over 50 years.’

Lucy will be working with the Havant Dynamo Youth Theatre in a specially- commissioned play for the organisation’s 30th anniversary.

Like a Daughter airs on August 9 at 2.15pm.
