We thought that you might be interested to know that SRO have tickets now available for a brand new series starring Ian McKellan & Derek Jacobi recorded at the ITV studios in SE1. As with all of SRO Audience shows, the tickets are FREE!


ITV is delighted to welcome VICIOUS, a brand new studio sitcom for 2013. Respected luminaries of British stage and screen, Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi head a formidable cast, joined by Frances De La Tour as well as some surprise star cameos in this unashamedly wicked new comedy.

Written by Gary Janetti, the Emmy nominated writer/producer behind hit shows Family Guy and Will & Grace, Vicious tells the story of ageing partners, Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi) who have lived together in a Covent Garden flat for nearly 50 years. In their prime, budding actor Freddie met bartender Stuart, but now as the golden years have crept up upon them they do little else besides reading, walking their dog and bickering. Feisty best friend Violet (Frances De La Tour) is always on hand to help calm their quarrels, entertaining the pair with her outlandish love affairs, she's young at heart with a delicious sense of humour.
Resigned to the familiar comforts of their life together, the arrival of a new neighbour, young, handsome and endearingly green - their world is turned upside down.

The show will be recorded on Tuesday evenings during February & March at The ITV Studios, London - and on two special afternoons (11th & 18th February), the cast will be pre-recording parts of the shows.

Booking is now open so if you would like to join for one of these very special evenings, then apply online now via those lovely people at SRO Audiences. Their website is .

A few of the Pinkwire team have been along to the recording of the first episode and are raving about it. Laugh out loud funny and teeth suckingly VICIOUS, A highly recommended Tuesday evening out with other arf !
