Our Next Show
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS 2023 TOUR
After All These Years is a bittersweet comedy about the passing of time and memory, and love, and last chances…
Nominated for the Outstanding Theatre Award in the 2021 Brighton Fringe, Close Quarter Productions and Theatre Reviva! return with a brand new production of After All These Years in 2023, in association with Julia Holofcener of Holofcener Ltd.
Relationships can be a delicate balance of hope, desire, memory, regret and much more besides, especially when two former showbiz couples think they know all there is to know about each other. But what secrets are quietly waiting for their cue to change things for ever?
“This Chekhovian elegy for the dance of age is in a defining league of its own.
A superb play, it should be, as one director present said, in the West End.” Fringe Review (2021)

Jeffrey is probably still best known for his TV appearances as Spike in Hi-De-Hi!, and James Twelvetrees in You Rang M’Lord?, as well as It Ain’t Half Hot Mum, Dad’s Army, Oh, Dr Beeching!, Are You Being Served? and The Mayor of Casterbridge, but has starred in theatres throughout the UK, including his own one-man show about Stan Laurel, which played three sellout seasons at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014, 2015 and 2018 – and he will be back there again this year as well. He is also one of the UK’s leading ‘Dames’, having appeared in a multitude of frocks over 40 pantomime seasons.
Judy’s career includes appearances in Baggage, The School for Scandal, Run For Your Wife, A Murder is Announced, The Ghost Train and The Last of the Red Hot Lovers in London’s West End; for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Judy played in Romeo & Juliet as well as Jessica in The Merchant of Venice and Iphigenia in The Greeks. Her many TV appearances include By The Sword Divided, Lovejoy, Bergerac, Blake’s Seven, Diary of a Nobody, Rising Damp, Next of Kin and three series as Dennis Waterman’s wife Ruth in On The Up.
In the West End Carol appeared in the original productions of Chicago, Hello Dolly! and more recently Guys and Dolls, The Goodbye Girl and Thoroughly Modern Millie, as well as playing Anytime Annie for five years in 42nd Street. Further credits include The Addams Family No.1 UK Tour, Flashdance No.1 UK Tour, and regional theatre highlights include the world premiere of Happy Days the Musical and the Sondheim musicals Company and Follies. TV includes The Bill, The Trip, Sherlock Holmes’ Smarter Brother and she also appeared in two Ken Russell films, The Boyfriend and Valentino.
Graham founded the British Actors Theatre Company in the late 1980s with Kate O’Mara and was a founder and director of The Original Shakespeare Company in the 1990s. He has been creating, producing and directing plays, films, workshops and radio programmes for many years and continues to work as an actor with TV credits in Howards Way, Life Begins, New Tricks, Hustle, Peak Practice, Angels and Doctors. Stage credits include Romeo and Juliet, As You Like It, The Art of Concealment, Hobson’s Choice, Rookery Nook and Noises Off. He established his own theatre company, Theatre Reviva!, in 2017.
In tandem with Theatre Reviva!, Close Quarter Productions produced the first Brighton Fringe run of After All These Years in 2021, which later transferred to the Ventnor Festival.
This was then followed by two tours of R.C. Sheriff’s classic, Journey’s End, in association with Julia Holofcener.
Other productions with which CQP has been involved include the revival of A.A. Milne’s The Dover Road at Jermyn Street Theatre in 2016 and, more recently, the UK tour of The Lavender Hill Mob.
