Haywire by Eric Chappell
Thurs 24th - Sat 26th May 2018
Tenterden Town Hall
A hilarious family-based sit-com written by the playwright of ‘Rising Damp’. Alec Firth is having an affair with his assistant, Liz, and has organized his domestic life so that they can go to Spain on holiday without making Alec’s wife, Maggie, remotely suspicious. On the doorstep, in dizzyingly rapid succession are: Phoebe, Alec’s mother, who has discharged herself from her old people’s home; Alec’s son Jamie, with a broken ankle; and his daughter, Mandy, heavily pregnant but not planning to marry the child’s father… What could possibly go wrong?
Directed by Vernon Reeve.
