The Dukeries Theatre Group’s next production is ‘Outside Edge’, a comedy by Richard Harris to be performed at The Acorn Theatre in Worksop on Thursday 7th, Friday 8th, and Saturday 9th November. This hilarious comedy is set one summer’s day at a village cricket match although there is more drama occurring in the pavilion than on the wicket! Roger has trouble assembling his cricket team to play against the British Railways Maintenance Division East, but these complications pail before those occurring among their various wives and girlfriends. As a final catastrophe, rain starts to fall.
The play, from the author of Stepping Out, was first seen at the Queen’s Theatre, London, starring Julia McKenzie and Maureen Lipman. It was also adapted for a TV comedy series during the 1990s. Why not go along and meet those characters again? Tickets are £10.00 and are available from the Acorn Theatre Box Office, call 01909 501817, or online at www.acorntheatre.net.
