On the Razzle, a Tom Stoppard play, is two hours of slapstick, mistaken identities, misdirected orders and romantic complications.

Sheringham’s Little Theatre will be transformed into the 1880s when it is performed tonight for the first time running to Saturday June 14 each night at 7.30pm.

On the Razzle opened on September 18, 1981 at the Royal National Theatre in London, with Felicity Kendal switching genders to star as Christopher.

Its plot focuses on Herr Zangler, the owner of a grocery store in a small Austrian village who plans to marry Mme. Knorr, the proprietor of a women’s clothing shop in Vienna.

In preparation for new life, he orders a new wardrobe and hires Melchior as a personal assistant. As he departs for Vienna, Zangler entrusts the operation of his business to his garrulous head clerk, Weinberl, and his naive apprentice, Christopher, who decide to go “on the razzle” to Vienna.

Tickets are £10 available from the Sheringham Little Theatre box office on 01263 822347 or or
