FUNNY MONEY

Tuesday 18 January - Saturday 22 January 2022

When Henry Perkins tries to escape to Barcelona with a cash-stuffed briefcase that he has found on a train, confusion mounts on confusion, with an inevitable hysterical conclusion ... Henry's long-suffering wife Jean nearly has a nervous breakdown, friends Betty and Vic Johnson find themselves helplessly involved; add in two policemen and a taxi driver whose lives will never be the same again and not to mention the not-so-sinister stranger who's ended up with Henry's briefcase instead of his own - with the money!

RATTLE OF A SIMPLE MAN

Tue 01 February to Sat 05 February 2022

When artless Percy comes down to London with his mates for a football match, he rashly accepts a £50 bet to finish off the evening with a girl who’s approached him in a club. But once back at her bedsit, and with the drink wearing off, he finds it not quite as easy to join the sexual revolution as he’d hoped - despite Cyrenne’s best efforts! Set firmly in the swinging sixties, Charles Dyer’s funny and perceptive play is an endearing classic that has received many West End revivals and a memorable production by our own Tabs Productions.
