Happy hooker looking for volunteers to take to the stage

The Hollywood movie can’t be very far away.

Life as a hooker V3First there was the acclaimed book – My Life as a Hooker – by locally based campaign organiser Steven Gauge. A one-man show followed, and now there’s to be a West End play. Wait until Gauge meets up with Andrew Lloyd-Webber…

My Life as a Hooker is basically the story of a mid-life crisis as survived through playing in the front row of the worst rugby team in Surrey, Warlingham RFC’s fourth XV.

Suffice to say that since Gauge passed over the reins of captaincy, the team has gone from strength to strength, while Gauge has moved on to new things, such as writing other comedy books and running LibDem leader Nick Clegg’s election campaign (the 2010 one, not the recent car wreck).

And now Gauge’s stories of mud and blunder are to take human form just in time for this year’s Rugby World Cup, with a theatrical run of My Life as a Hooker at the Museum of Comedy in London from September 21 to 26.

Gauge wants rugby players to audition for parts in the play, with the audition taking place this Sunday, June 28, from noon in the room above the bar at Warlingham RFC (off Limpsfield Road). Email him on stevengauge@mac.com if you are interested for more information. Backstage crew will also be needed, so again let him know if you can help.

Tickets for the play are already available now from the Museum of Comedy’s website.
