Marriage farce takes to the stage in Marlborough
2:00pm Friday 2nd November 2012 in News
The Marlborough Players will perform JB Priestley’s comedy When We Are Married at the town hall from Wednesday to Saturday next week, November 7 and 10.
Set in the late 19th century, it tells the story of three highly respectable couples in a small West Riding town who are celebrating their silver wedding anniversaries, having married in the same chapel on the same day.
Pandemonium ensues when they discover the cleric who married them wasn’t authorised to do so and, that technically speaking, they have spent the last quarter of a century living in sin.
The Players’ publicist Gail Sinden said: “Throw in a vulgar char-lady, a drunken press photographer, a naive reporter and a lady of doubtful repute and it’s not difficult to see why this highly engaging farce continues to delight and entertain audiences.”
Tickets cost £7 from the White Horse Bookshop, or call (07752) 772340. More information at marlboroughplayers.co.uk
