Birds of a Feather stage show set for Norwich

A classic comedy trio are reuniting for a stage show that will be coming to Norwich next year.

Linda Robson, Pauline Quirke and Lesley Joseph will be reprising their roles of Sharon, Tracey and Dorien as Birds Of A Feather takes to the stage of Norwich Theatre Royal.

The BBC comedy ran for nearly a decade with audiences tuning in to follow the adventures of sisters Sharon Theodopoulos, Tracey Stubbs and their man-eating neighbour Dorien Green.

Now The Comedy Theatre Company, who were behind the stage adaptation of Dinnerladies, have created a brand new show which will play in Norwich from June 11 to 16.

Theatre Royal spokesman John Bultitude said: 'Because of the busy working lives of all three lead performers, the tour is only visiting a handful of venues.

'We are very excited to be hosting this brand-new show featuring three of Britain's favourite female comedy characters.'

The theatre has also announced a trio of other shows visiting next year. From April 2-7 a host of familiar names will join together in the popular show Calendar Girls.
