Out of Order
May 8th - May 13th
When a Government Junior Minister plans to spend the evening with one of the Opposition’s typists in the Westminster Hotel, things go disastrously wrong – beginning with the discovery of a body trapped in the hotel’s only unreliable sash window. Desperately trying to get out of an extremely sticky situation, things quickly go from bad to worse.
This stellar company includes Arthur Bostrom, best known for his iconic role as ‘Officer Crabtree’ in classic sitcom ‘Allo ‘Allo, as the ‘Hotel Manager’, alongside Shaun Williamson (EastEnders, Extras) as ‘George Pigden’; Sue Holderness (Only Fools & Horses, Green Green Grass) as ‘Mrs Willey’; Susie Amy (Footballers’ Wives) as ‘Jane Worthington’; James Holmes (Miranda) as the ‘Waiter’; Elizabeth Elvin as ‘Nurse Foster’; Jules Brown as ‘Ronnie Worthington’, David Warwick as ‘The Body’ and Jeffrey Harmer (Poirot, The Bill) as ‘Richard Willey’. Completing the cast are Raphael Bar, Simon Murray, and Kate Sawyer.
Recognised as ‘the master of farce’ (The Telegraph), Ray Cooney’s credits also include Run For Your Wife, Funny Money and Move Over Mrs Markham.
*Due to unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances, Andrew Hall has been compelled to withdraw from the Out Of Order tour. He will be replaced by Jeffrey Harmer.
