TEMPTATION IN THE TEMPLE A farcical adult comedy by K.R.S. Foster The company that has created a cult following around the UK with his brand of Adult Panto will be visiting in the summer with their farcical adult comedy.

At the Temple of Vesta, ‘celibacy’ is a way of life. However, for reluctant virgin, Frigella the Fulfiller , this means her only chance at ‘Shagamus’ is to escape to the Temple of Venus next door.

A fool - proof plan is needed and this must be expertly implemented to avoid a nasty punishment. Sadly, with Frigella’s well - meaning but charmingly stupid friend, Bimbus , things will never be straightforward, especially with the High Priestess, Virginia Creeper, suspicious of her every move!

Don’t miss this hilarious evening of farcical confusion and outrageous innuendo...it may also contain mild audience participation!

Tickets £16

*Suitable for ages 16+ 

“ This combination of Up Pompeii, Carry On traditions and Panto elements could hardly fail to raise a titter or two - far more than that actually as the girls had the audience in stitches throughout and rightly so.” – Choice Radio, Worcester (on the 2019 Roman Romp)

Keeping The Dream Alive is a play written by Rose Cook Monk honouring the iconic Duncan Edwards and the events of the Munich air crash.

This incredible play tells the story of the world’s greatest footballer Duncan Edwards, who tragically died on the 21st February 1958 from injuries sustained in the infamous Munich aircraft disaster which killed eight of the magnificent Busby Babes, the wonderfully talented young Manchester United players, who under the Management of the iconic Matt Busby were the very best of young footballing talent.

This play is sympathetically and carefully penned with the full backing of Duncan's loving family. Revealing details about the disaster that are largely unknown, it tells the personal stories of those closest to Duncan in the wake of the tragedy.

This play features the very best of local talent and the one and only academy award winner Bernard Hill, who is a life long Manchester United fan.

Whether you're a history enthusiast, a football fanatic or just appreciate high quality theatre productions, this is an event you really can't miss.

Based on the brand new picture book by Steven Lee (Don't Dribble On The Dragon, How the Koala Learnt To Hug) and brought to you by the creators of There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly, this adorable family musical celebrates everything great about being a kid - and everything great about having one.

NOT LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER 

A parody of LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER by DH LAWRENCE

Think The Naked Gun and Airplane! mixed with a steamy costume drama. A laughter-filled parody of the D.H. Lawrence novel.

Lady Chatterley welcomes home her husband, Clifford, from a war that has left the world in tatters. With Clifford’s legs also in tatters, he arrives at Wragby Manor confined to a wheelchair and clutching his secret.

Despite her husband’s impotence, a subject that all struggle to avoid; Constance entertains the idea that one day they could have a child.However, as the couple grow apart Constance falls into a passionate, sexual and curiously experimental affair with estate gamekeeper: Mellors.

Expect long contemplative looks into the middle distance, moments of touching drama, plenty of farce and a gentle stroke of innuendo in this Mel Brooks style parody.
