S.O.S. DOES SHAKESPEARE by Chrissy Evans


It is the last show for director Phil,  as he retires after 50 years, man and boy, in his beloved local amateur dramatic group

One last chance to show the country, indeed the world what he can do.

If only they had the cast, if only they had the costumes, if only Juliet wasn’t pregnant and if only Kevin didn’t prefer musicals…………..

An hilarious new comedy about the vagaries and dangers of producing
