The New Neighbour

Just William - Live!, Series 4 Episode 2 of 2

As a highlight of the Cheltenham Festival of Literature in October, Martin Jarvis performed the second of two of Richmal Crompton's comic classics, live on-stage.

In The New Neighbour, William Brown is at his lateral-thinking best. How to rid the village of a horrific newcomer who torments his neighbours? William, master of human psychology, devises a brilliant plan. But, when the local policeman intervenes, will it work?

Dazzling stand-up from Jarvis - as William, and every other character. A comic tour de force.

Performed by Martin Jarvis
