OUR AUTUMN 2019 TOUR

By Pat Whymark & Julian Harries

Touring East Anglia from September 13th to October 26th

TO BOOK YOUR TICKETS, SCROLL DOWN THROUGH THE TOUR SCHEDULE BELOW, TILL YOU FIND YOUR PREFERRED VENUE, THEN CLICK ON THE ADJACENT BUTTON OR CALL THE RELEVANT NUMBER

Take a ride up the comedy freeway with a tale of mobsters, missing gems and a mashed-up motorbike.

 

Dick’s quiet suburban life is shattered when his brother Julian returns suddenly from The States, for “health” reasons. But his shady American “associates” have unfinished business with him, putting both their health at risk. Their dad’s old bike and sidecar, which Dick has been “doing up”, might come in handy as their getaway vehicle!

 

A black comedy with original music by Pat Whymark & Julian Harries and starring Julian and Dick Mainwaring - reprising the characters they created for Common Ground's 2013 comedy, Stuff In The Attic  (“Pat Whymark’s latest play is very funny indeed” East Anglian Daily Times, “Good music and plenty of well-judged comic touches” In Suffolk, “Moments of pure farce alternate with real conflict” What’s on Stage). Expect "The Odd Couple" versus the Mob!

 

Common Ground have been bringing their distinctive brand of  music theatre - with strong narrative, strong emotion and a touch of the surreal – to venues across East Anglia, since 2008.

 

Running time - 2 hours (including interval)
