Wife After Death – Oct/Nov 2023

Directed by Penny Grant

Wife After Death — it’s the perfect title for a fabulous play written by Eric Chappell the award-winning writer of the situation comedies we’ve all loved – Rising Damp, Only When I Laugh, Duty Free
There nothing morbid about this play, quite the reverse. It is the day of the funeral of great comedian, TV personality and National Treasure, Dave Thursby. Dave’s glamorous young widow has arranged a funeral to remember, complete with horse-drawn hearse and an attendant dog. A mystery female guest arrives, dressed in a full flamboyant black outfit, and upsets the proceedings with a devastating announcement. As the day and weeks progress other revelations come out of the woodwork and friends and colleagues begin to realise that they really didn’t know Dave at all…….intriguing, very different, a laugh a minute, it will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Performances: Monday 30th October to Saturday 4th November. 7.30 pm
