A hilarious masterpiece of situation comedy

Beverly and husband Laurence are entertaining their newlywed neighbours. Joining them is twitchy divorcee Sue, banished from the party of her teenage daughter. Over a stack of cheesy-pineapple sticks, small talk and splashes of alcohol, the appalling host's soiree soon descends into chaos. As the sniping begins, this delicious comedy cracks open social climbing suburbia to savagely funny effect. 

Set in seventies Romford, with Donna Summer top of the hit parade and adults behaving disgracefully, join us for a great night out at the drinks party from hell! Made famous by the BBC 'Play for Today' starring Alison Steadman, this fresh but faithful look at this iconic classic by Mike Leigh.


 Saturday 25th April @ 7.30 - Around the world in 80 days

The world is getting smaller they say. If you think this is a new idea, you should catch up with Amici Touring Theatre's latest production, " Around the World in 80 Days", adapted from the Jules Verne novel. 

Phileas Fogg wagers his friends at the Reform club half his fortune that he can circumnavigate the world in 80 days. Trains, boats, sledges and even the odd elephant (but alas no balloon) are used to attempt this outrageous trip.  

Accompanied by his French valet, Passepartout, the frantically fastidious Fogg, lurches from one comical disaster to another, in his attempt to win his bet. The main cast is admirably supported by a team of actors that take on a multitude of roles, as Fogg makes his way round the globe.
