Historique du musical

Génèse du musical

First broadcast on the BBC in 1981, Only Fools and Horses was the quintessential British comedy show. Starring David Jason as South London market trader Derek ‘Del Boy’ Trotter and Nicholas Lyndhurst as his younger brother Rodney, the Peckham brothers spent their lives trying to get rich quick with a number of schemes devised through their company, Trotters Independent Trading Co. Their yellow three-wheeler Reliant Regal is an icon and can be spotted on the odd road across Britain if you’re lucky…

Broadcasting for seven series until 1991, Only Fools and Horses contained some of British comedy’s funniest gags, including Del Boy’s iconic fall through the bar sketch, the brothers’ run through the streets dressed as Batman and Robin, or any scene involving their friend Trigger, Only Fools and Horses is loved by millions across the UK.

Only Fools and Horses also starred Lennard Pearce as Grandad, Buster Merryfield as Uncle Albert, Tessa Peake-Jones as Del Boy’s love Raquel and John Challis as snobby car salesman Boycie.

The series originally ran for 10 years with a number of specials, and spawned two BBC spin-offs: The Green Green Grass focused on the life of Boycie and his family in the countryside, and Rock and Chips, a prequel written by Only Fools and Horses creator John Sullivan in 2010.
