This new episode takes Dick back to his
early days travelling from stiff upper lip 1930s Britain to Australia via
trying to unravel the decipher and foil another evil plot.
A legendary tweed suit promises its wearer ultimate power.
Dick must scour the globe to reunite the pieces of the mysterious suit, to stop it falling into the wrong hands -
and to win the girl of his dreams. With non-stop action The Devil Wears Tweed features new songs,
brings back favourite characters and introduces familiar faces from the past -
from Hollywood's Irving Berlin to cricket hero Don Bradman.
"An energetic and talented cast tell this tale of derring-do with great aplomb.
As well as delivering virtuoso comic performances, they also sing with vigour,
and even double up as the band for the musical numbers - such dashed good fun!' The Times
