Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his Parisian mistress, while his wife, Jacqueline is away. He has arranged for a cook to prepare gourmet delights and has invited his best friend Robert along as alibi. What could possibly go wrong? Well…. suppose Robert turns up, not realising why he’s been invited. Suppose Jacqueline and Robert are secret lovers and she’s determined not to leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues.

Anne Elliot fell deeply in love with a handsome young naval officer, Frederick Wentworth, at the age of nineteen. But because he had neither fortune nor rank to recommend him, Anne’s mentor and friend, Lady Russell, persuaded her to break off the engagement. Eight years later, Anne has lived to regret her decision. She never stopped loving Frederick – and when he returns from sea a Captain, she can only watch as every eligible young woman falls at his feet. Can the pair rekindle a love that was lost but not forgotten? This new adaptation was commissioned and first produced by Salisbury Playhouse in 2011.

ROMEO AND JULIET
by William Shakespeare
Friday 21 July 2022 at 7.30pm
Saturday 22 July 2022 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm
Tickets £8 – on sale now
Join the Young Players this July for a brand-new adaptation of Shakespeare’s much-loved play, Romeo and Juliet, where you’ll find yourself in the middle of a market brawl between two households, rivals in the cut-throat world of competing coffee shops! It’s fun and energetic with all the conflict and romance you’d expect to find in this play.
Our protagonists find themselves in a tricky situation, so Romeo goes to seek some friendly advice from “Friars”, the local barbers. The play takes a deadly turn for our lovers when an extremely important letter goes missing (rumour has it that the nurse used it to throw away her chewing gum!), leaving our piano playing hero, Romeo, with no choice other than to visit the dodgy owner of “Superdrug” to help him.
The play reaches a devastating end but before that we’ll make sure the toe taping tunes and vibrant cast make you leave the theatre with a smile and an understanding of what the heck has just happened in the last hour and a half (yes, don’t worry, Shakespeare doesn’t have to be three hours long!) Suitable for all ages, 5 to 95.
