Strategem with Alan Partridge promises to inform, educate and entertain in approximately equal measure.

His publicity material says: “Wearing a head-mic favoured by TED talkers, market hawkers, TV evangelists, backing singers and carnival barkers, Alan combines all these roles and more.

"It’s a manifesto for the way we can move forward, a road map to a better tomorrow, an ABC for the way to be.

“Devised, written, choreographed, performed, and funded by Alan Partridge, Stratagem sees Alan not just treading the boards but pounding them, atop stages graced by such luminaries as Michael Ball, Jack Whitehall and Welsh rockers the Stereophonics.

“So join Alan, live on stage - although patrons are asked not to join Alan live on stage - as he brings Stratagem to a city or selected good-sized town near you.”

The show is produced by Phil McIntyre Live Ltd and Baby Cow Productions and is written by Steve Coogan, Neil Gibbons and Rob Gibbons.
