The next production by theatre group the Old Buckenham Players will be a sequel to a comedic show they put on last year called Run For Your Wife.

The new performance, Caught In The Net, was also written by Ray Cooney, and sees the same characters, John Smith, Stanley, Mary and Barbara embroiled in a frantic and desperate cover-up.

The play takes place 19 years after John's bigamy was unearthed in 1982.

The characters' wives, best friends and children are also added to the mix.

A video of the previous show can be seen on the Old Buckenham Players' Facebook page.

Performances will take place at the Old Buckenham Village Hall on May 18, 19 and 20, starting at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8 from Old Buckenham Village Stores, Nuts 'n' Bolts in Attleborough, or by calling 01953 861336.
