FRIDAY 7th AUGUST – TUESDAY 18th AUGUST 2015  8pm    (Excluding Sundays)

Matinee  Tuesday 11th August 2015  2.30pm

Written by Alan Ayckbourn. Directed by Nicky Henson.


The play takes place in three bedrooms during one night and the subsequent morning. The eldest couple, Delia and Ernest, are getting ready to go out for a meal to celebrate their wedding anniversary; Malcolm and Kate, the youngest, are about to host a housewarming party, to which the other two couples; Jan and Nick and Susannah and Trevor, have been invited. At the last minute Nick hurts his back and is unable to go.

Ayckbourn’s clever uses of time and space makes this a very intricate and sophisticated comedy while also portraying the deteriorating and rebuilding of relationships among young couples. This play explores the differences in relationships between the younger and older generations while capitalising on certain unlikely issues that may strain the relationships even further.

This professional production is part of Sheringham Little Theatre’s ’55 Years- 5 Best Plays’ season, giving audiences the chance to enjoy some favourite plays which helped make our Summer Repertory so popular.

Tuesday 25th August 2015   Matinee 2.30pm 

Written by Robin Hawdon.

Directed by Simon Thompson.

Comedy.  An appalling situation. A bridegroom wakes on his wedding morning in his own bridal suite, with his bride-to-be about to arrive any moment, and finds a strange girl in bed beside him. What’s more an extremely attractive girl whom, in the depths of his post stag-night hangover, he can’t remotely remember even having been introduced to.

Worse – during the ensuing panic to get the stranger dressed and out of the way, the bride arrives and the girl is trapped in the bathroom. The only way out of the dilemma is to persuade the best man to pretend that the hidden girl is his girl friend. Then the problem is that the best man’s real girl friend has to be kept ignorant of the fact. By the time the bride’s parents and half the hotel staff get in on the act, the chaos reaches nuclear proportions!

This professional production is part of Sheringham Little Theatre’s ’55 Years- 5 Best Plays’ season, giving audiences the chance to enjoy some favourite plays which helped make our Summer Repertory so popular.
