We spoke to the comedian and actor Lenny Henry about the new stage version of the hit Radio Four sitcom Rudy's Rare Records.

This touching comedy with real rhythm is set in an old reggae record shop in Birmingham, which is owned by the irrepressible Rudy Sharpe (Larrington Walker) with the assistance of his long-suffering son Adam (Lenny Henry).

With Rudy's chaotic "if it ain't on the shelf, it's on the floor" style clashing with Adam's love for order, the record shop becomes a battleground for both men. When Adam's son (E4's Youngers and Mandem on the Wall star, Joivan Wade) comes back from uni, a whole new rhythm gets added to the mix! But when greedy developers spot the shop, father and son must put their differences aside and battle to keep the music alive.

Featuring music by the likes of Jimmy Cliff, Desmond Dekker and The Sugarhill Gang -- all played live by an onstage band.
