BANG BANG!

5th May 2020 - 9th May 2020

 

BANG BANG!

A new farce by John Cleese*

Based on ‘Monsieur Chasse’ by Georges Feydeau

With Tessa Peake-Jones, Tony Gardner and Wendi Peters

(*Mr Cleese does not appear in this production – he wanted to, but we wouldn’t let him)

‘Laugh out loud’ The Stage

‘Cleese is a master of surreal British slapstick’ Daily Telegraph

John Cleese makes his stage writing debut with a hilarious new adaptation of this classic comedy – a delicious blend of French Farce and Fawlty Towers.

When Leontine, a respectable society lady, discovers that she’s been hoodwinked by her husband, Duchotel, who’s always pretending to go hunting but really chasing after other ‘prey’, she vows to take revenge on the philanderer! But while Duchotel’s away, his lifelong friend comes calling – and he’s on the hunt too.

Will Leontine get caught in his sights, or instead set a trap of her own?

Secrets unravel as the devilish Duchotel finds himself snared in a door-slamming, trouser-dropping, balcony-climbing night of chaos set amidst the stylish apartments of Paris.

Tessa Peake-Jones became a household name with her role as Raquel in the iconic comedy Only Fools and Horses. Her extensive stage work encompasses the National Theatre and RSC, recent credits include The Winslow Boy and Shirley Valentine.

Tony Gardner first made his name in comedy as part of the award-winning comedy duo Struck off and Die. Since then he has appeared on TV in roles ranging from the My Parents are Aliens to Last Tango in Halifax and on stage in Alan Ayckbourn’s classic Bedroom Farce.

Wendi Peters is most widely known for her role as Cilla Battersby in Coronation Street and is currently appearing in the West End smash-hit musical BIG.

“will make your face hurt from laughing!” Review from the American Premier Production 

Hilarious!” “ Very Funny” “ Loved it!”

“…a riot of comedy… brilliant farce with laugh a minute one-liners which had us in stitches. A must see.”
