TV cooking duo Peter Hudson and David Halls were magnificent. From 1976 to 1985 they whipped up what seemed to us weird and wonderful meals, they interviewed top stars, laughed, drank, fought and flung most of the food they cooked on the floor. Obviously but not openly gay, they were watched - and loved - the length of the country. Silo Theatre's final show for the year wants to capture the humour and the heartbreak of the pair's on and off screen life. Hudson and Halls Live! is an immersive stage show with real cooking and catches the pair at a crucial moment in their lives and careers. And as Justin Gregory finds out when he drops in on rehearsals, the two lead actors are fully inhabiting their roles.
