Bedroom Farce – Presented by New Penny Theatre Company – 15-18 May

Wed, 04/04/2018 - 08:17

Bedroom Farce

Presented by New Penny Theatre Company

After “NOISES OFF” & “RELATIVELY SPEAKING” New Penny Theatre Company hits the stage at the Elgiva once more with Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious hit comedy “BEDROOM FARCE”. 

Set in the seventies, we visit three bedrooms over one night and the next morning, following the story of four married couples. Delia and Ernest, the oldest couple, are getting ready to celebrate their wedding anniversary; the youngest couple Malcolm and Kate are preparing for their housewarming party.  The other two couples, Jan and Nick and Susannah and Trevor are invited to this party.

This play explores the differences in relationships between the younger and older generations and captures unlikely issues that may strain the relationships even further. Observe our 4 couples in this  absurd and confusing comedy, comparing and contrasting the differences between couples young and old, and the different troubles they encounter. This play had certain sadistic aspects involving cheating, and lying, which evolves into forgiveness and devotion. Although the play may seem to lead into a corner of despair and heartbreak, it substitutes the hard truths of certain relationships into relationships that may have a chance at survival.

Production and ticket details:

Tickets: £15

15-18 May – Elgiva Chesham – 01494  582900 http://www.elgiva.com

Sister Act – The Musical – Coming to Chesham 18-21 April 2018

Wed, 04/04/2018 - 08:12

Get your act together!  Sister Act – The Musical – Coming to Chesham 18-21 April 2018

Award winning Chesham Musical Theatre Company brings a fantastic new production of “Sister Act” to life, based on the Whoopi Goldberg film of the same name.  It tells the story of nightclub singer, Delores van Cartier, who witnesses a murder carried out by her gangster boyfriend.  She must go into witness protection as a nun – a church is the last place the crooks will look!  The church she hides in is in dire need of funds to keep going, so she is tasked with teaching the choir to sing.  A product of her own success, the choir goes from strength to strength but will potentially blow her cover!

Performances nightly at 7.45pm plus Saturday matinee 2.30pm. Tickets available now from www.elgiva.com  from £14.50.  Great idea for a team night out, some fabulous tunes and cheaper than London prices.  Please come along to support and have a good laugh!
