Comedy Triple Bill

29th July 2017 to 29th July 2017

Caxton Theatre Main Stage

Director:Adam Morley

Writer:See Below


Baroque Theatre Company bring a comedy triple bill with the following one-act plays: A Jolly Sinister Jape (by Elliot Strange) A pastiche 1920's thriller with a plot that defies description. This is Famous Five fun for adults as Stubby, Ophelia, Biffy and Fatty find themselves trapped in a mysterious house during a thunderstorm. Is this someone's idea of a jape? Or is something far more sinister going on? All is revealed in this madcap comedy set in the Roaring Twenties. It's fast and furious with a liberal sprinkling of hilarious period slang, along with mystery and thrills. Last Tango in Little Grimley (by David Tristram) Membership of the local amateur dramatic society has dwindled to four and the audiences aren't much bigger. If they don't come up with some rent money soon, they're going to be thrown out. Time for dramatic action. "There's only one thing that sells tickets these days" argues Gordon the Chairman. "Sex!" But how will the locals react to the promise of a sizzling sex comedy? All is revealed in this hilarious play and thus begins the chaotic build-up to an evening of extraordinary home-grown drama - an evening the locals would never forget! Last Panto in Little Grimley (by David Tristram) Sequel to Last Tango in Little Grimley, Last Panto in Little Grimley features the same incompetent characters. Gordon, Margaret, Joyce and Bernard tackle the Christmas Pantomime with predictable riotous results. It's Dick Whittington...but not as you know it! All tickets £10.00

2nd September 2017 to 9th September 2017

Caxton Theatre Main Stage

Director:Jane Stolworthy

Writer:Alan Bennett


People spoil things; there are so many of them and the last thing one wants is them traipsing through one's house. But with the park a jungle and a bath on the billiard table, what is one to do? Dorothy wonders if an attic sale could be a solution. After centuries a traditional family estate lies in a state of disrepair; desperately requiring financing to keep the once grand residence restored and maintained. Lady Dorothy, our world-weary, beleaguered central character, would rather sell off the contents of the house or even allow explicit films to shoot at the residence in order to save the property from the grips of the National Trust. However, her rather more proper sister wholeheartedly disagrees. This central conflict enables Bennett to examine the philosophical and ethical dilemmas of restoration, in an age of rampant public consumption, with hilarious and touching results. PLEASE NOTE THE PERFORMANCES BEGIN AT THE USUAL TIME OF 7.30 P.M. AND NOT 7.00 P.M. AS SHOWN.
