A farce by Philip King
Touring April 7 - 22
A former colleague calls on a vicar's wife and ignites a delicious farce of mistaken identity. Set in a post-war English village, King's play originally ran for 18 months at the Comedy Theatre in London's West End, notching up 589 performances with a cast which included the young Joan Hickson. A fast-paced drama of blissful hilarity.

& Afterplay by Brian Friel
Set in a hotel on the south coast of England in the mid 1920’s. Cast includes Open Space and RoughCast favourites
We had an excellent 10 day tour of Harold Pinter's play Betrayal, playing in full to capacity theatres. The popularity of Pinter surprised us, and the appreciation of the audiences, especially at The PumpHouse (Aldeburgh), a new venue for us, was heartening.
