Warwick Davis, the small man with huge talent, is living a dream. After being in show business for 33 years, he wanted to move his career in a different direction by acting in a traditional play. When the opportunities didn’t come up, he decided to take matters into his own hands.

It was a case of the women stealing the show at Derby Theatre last night. In the comedy chaos that is See How They Run it is the irreverent vicar’s wife, the cheeky maid and pompous spinster who deserve the most plaudits.

"What would you do with a revolver tickling your ribs?"

Warwick Davis set up The Reduced Height Theatre Company to give himself and other short actors, acting opportunities that might otherwise never come their way and to tap into the wealth of talent in the short actor community; and what a treat for the audience!

"I've been so lucky with the acting roles I've had over the years but I came to realise that the only way to get the best opportunities on stage is to form my own theatre company," Warwick Davis explained to an appreciative Derby audience, following his first performance of the farcical comedy, See How They Run in the city.

Warwick Davis established the Reduced Height Theatre Company so he can for once be in a proper play and employ a full cast of actors of short stature. His choice is this farce full of vicars, soldiers and a German.

Warwick Davis decided to form the Reduced Height Theatre Company to enable himself and other short actors to play roles that would otherwise not be offered to them. Their first venture is See How They Run by Philip King, a much loved farce set in 1943 and playing heavily on mistaken identity, doors and vicars.

As the brainchild of TV and film veteran Warwick Davis, the Reduced Height Theatre Company has landed at the Richmond Theatre proving that even though the company may be petite in height, their energy is certainly not in short supply.

The comedy, says the handbill for this touring production, will be "heightened" by the fact that the cast are all under four feet tall.

Arguably one of Britain’s best loved comedies, Philip King’s See How They Run premiered in London in 1945 offering something of a tonic to theatregoers at the tail end of the Second World War.
