A Comedy by Charles Stott
Directed by Sheila Lines
As the title suggests the cast and crew turn up for
what they think is an ordinary rehearsal, when they are told that the
publicity has been printed wrong and the play will start its performance
the next day. Nothing is finished on the set as the crew were banking
on the next 6 weeks to finish everything off. The director has the unenviable
job of convincing cast and crew alike that they will be ready in 24 hours
and that it will be ‘alright on the night’. As you can imagine it is another

Country boy D’Artagnan is desperate to join the King’s elite band of bodyguards and become a Musketeer. Despite his fiery temper, and frankly ridiculous horse, he impresses the guards enough to join them in their bid to outwit the scheming Cardinal and seductive, spying Milady and so save the King. Huzzah! Romance and conflict, croissants and cheese await them on their mission, but could a deadly secret be the death of them all?
Inspired by Monty Python’s The Holy Grail and the absurdities
of their own lives, Patchwork Theatre have taken Dumas’ swashbuckling
classic apart and stuck it back together again using absurdist humour,
physical comedy and a healthy dollop of moustache twiddling. Featuring
swordfights, dance moves and a cornet, this exciting adaptation is sure
to be ‘One for All’.
In The Club is a wickedly funny play encompassing one day in the life of Socialist MEP Philip Wardrobe. Set in a hotel suite in Strasbourg, one of the two centres of the European Parliament (why do they need two?!), Philip has two projects to occupy his mind. Not only does he have to facilitate Turkey’s application to join the political club of Europe but also it is the day selected to impregnate his longstanding partner, Nicola. Throw into the mix a corrupt ambassador, an amorous French lady MEP, A Yorkshire pig farming UKIP politician and a Belgian plumber who is not all that he seems and you have the recipe for two hours of sparkling wit and hilarity. First performed in 2007 prior to a UK Tour, In The Club was described as “…beautifully crafted, well written and as funny as anything currently on the stage”.
