One Man, Two Guvnors
by Richard Bean +

It is Brighton in 1963 and out-of-work Francis Henshaw finds employment with two separate men – Roscoe Crabbe, a gangster, and Stanley Stubbers, an upper-class twit! Francis desperately attempts to avoid his two employers meeting so that neither discovers he is working for the other. To complicate events, Roscoe is actually Rachel Crabbe, his twin sister in disguise. And Roscoe has been killed by Rachel’s boyfriend – who is none other than Stanley! Further confusion arises when local mobster Charlie the Duck arranges his daughter Pauline’s engagement to Roscoe (now actually Rachel) despite her preference for over-the-top actor Alan Dangle! Sounds complicated, but this has all the ingredients of a really funny farce and a great way to open our 76th season

Matinee performance on Sunday 17th.

Sleeping Beauty
by Joshua Clarke and Lewis Clarke +

Once upon a time there lived a King and Queen who ruled a far-off Kingdom. They had a beautiful daughter, Aurora, and so overjoyed were they that they invited everyone to bestow a gift upon the lovely Princess. However the evil sorcerer Magnificent also had his beady eyes on the throne and now Aurora stood in his way. So he hatched a cunning plan that would seal our Beauty’s fate forever... Yes, it’s Panto time again! So you can expect laugh-out-loud comedy, slapstick, songs and the inevitable audience participation. Oh yes you can!

In this famous Victorian-set thriller, Jack Manningham is slowly and deliberately driving his wife Bella insane. And he has almost succeeded when help arrives in the unlikely shape of a former detective, ex-Inspector Rough, who suspects Manningham to be a thief and murderer. But can Rough gather the vital evidence he needs in time to save Bella from a fate worse than death? And what is the significance of the gaslight that dims in the drawing room without apparent reason?
