Wedding day disaster looms in Sheringham Little Theatre farce

The summer rep season continues this week at Sheringham Little Theatre as bridegroom-to-be Bill attempts to stave off a wedding day disaster in writer and TV actor Robin Hawdon's uproarious farce Perfect Wedding, which runs at Sheringham Little Theatre this week.

Directed by Paston College drama tutor Simon Thompson, the play follows Bill's efforts to overcome an almighty hangover, while his best man attempts to hide his pal's wedding night misdemeanours - not only from the bride-to-be, but also from his future mother-in-law.

The fast-paced farce weaves its way through a web of lies, as the pair concoct an ever-more tangled version of events in an effort to fend off the family's suspicions.

Continuing the theatre's summer repertory season on August 10 is Patrick Hamilton's nail-biting thriller Gaslight, which tells the tale of scheming husband Jack Manningham's mental torture of his young, vulnerable wife Bella.

Set in fogbound London in 1880, the classic psychological thriller promises to have audiences on the edge of their seats as, via a series of twists and turns, the plot unfolds, revealing a woman who is convinced she is going mad.

However the appearance of police detective Rough sheds a chilling light over what has been taking place within Bella's own home.

Perfect Wedding runs at Sheringham Little Theatre from August 4-9. Gaslight runs from August 10-16.
