Warwick Davis's Big Night

1 x 60' Thursday 5 February 2015 BBC TWO

Actor Warwick Davis puts his money on the line to set up The Reduced Height Theatre Company, producing classic plays cast entirely with short actors.  It's always been Warwick's dream to be taken seriously as a stage actor, and to give other short actors opportunities outside panto and creature roles.  As Warwick and the company rehearse for their opening night, and his wife Sam undergoes major spinal surgery, we learn about the challenges of theatrical production, and the physical and psychological pressures of being a dwarf in an average height world.
