The Dwain & Hendry story started some years ago as a play called “Bench”, written by Brent Palmer (Hendry).
I was lucky enough to catch it twice. Brent and Adrian Collins (Dwain) blew me away with their performances. And Brent’s tight, hysterical, poignant, brilliant script is something to be experienced.
The play was then adapted to a short film called Picture Perfect Heist which won the SAFTA for best short in 2015.
Last year, Brent approached me to guest on a new web series that he was creating with the folks at Bench Films (no relation).
To say I was flattered would be an understatement. I was thrilled and so honoured to be asked to be part of the story of these two… well, idiots, really, is the only way to describe Dwain & Hendry.
