The Double Act – Under Construction

Ronni Ancona and Sally Phillips

Ronni and Sally have been once told that their chemistry together onstage was amazing and they ought to do a double act. Two problems. They are endlessly distracted and they don’t like each other much. This is the first and last (yes, really) performance of a show of an idea for a show they had when they were supposed to be doing other things.

Ronni Ancona first became known for her work on the BAFTA winning The Big Impression series with Alistair McGowan for which she won the British Comedy Award for Best Actress and the prestigious Variety Club Award. She also received a BAFTA for her performance in The Sketch Show, which she also co-wrote. Ronni has worked extensively in both comedy and drama such as the international hit comedy-drama Last Tango in Halifax, in which she has been a regular character since its conception.

Sally Phillips is one of Britain’s best-known comic talents with twenty-five years of credits in film and television including the Bridget Jones trilogy, Veep, I’m Alan Partridge, Green Wing, Taskmaster and Miranda. She co-created the double Emmy Award winner Smack the Pony and wrote The Decoy Bride.

Ronni and Sally are founders and directors of Captain Dolly Productions with Nick Hamson.
