John Chapman’s hilarious farce Kindly Leave The Stage is coming to Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsborough this weekend.
Presented by Baroque Theatre Company, the show is a celebration of fun, mayhem and thespian mischief and is of a similar format to the classic farce Noises Off, in that it’s focus is a play within a play.
The ensemble go head to head as they play the characters in the play and the actors who are in the play.
Sound confusing? Well don’t worry, it’s not.
This is a fast-paced farce which is easy to watch and a lots of fun.
Get ready to see jealousy, revelations and the precious actor’s egos revealed all one stage, all held together with some crisp writing and hilarious ‘double entrendres’ from John Chapman.
The marriage of Rupert and Sarah is on the rocks and their friends Charles and Madge, both of whom are lawyers, agree to handle the divorce.
After the curtain has been up a few minutes, Rupert forgets his lines, has a brain storm and threatens to kill Charles in full view of the audience because he’s been having an affair off stage with Rupert’s real wife, Sarah.
The play is a light hearted tilt at the complete theatricality of stage folk.
Directed by Adam Morley and produced by Claire Bibby, the play comes to Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsborough on Saturday, June 25 at 7.30pm.
Tickets priced £10 and £8 are available now from the box office on 01427 676655 or online at www.west-lindsey.gov.uk/trinity-arts-centre
