We're very pleased to announce that a legend of British comedy is to come out of retirement in France to appear in a musical romp here this year as part of our 75th anniversary celebrations. The Dowager's Oyster is described as a light opera that captures the comic book charades of a 1920s murder mystery farce and at its heart is the return to the stage of Dr Evadne Hinge, one half of the enormously popular double act Hinge and Bracket which entertained audiences with their songs and 'theatrical memories' for 30 years.
The story so far...
Persephone, Lady Tindale, sits in her boudoir, deep in thought. Cynthia, her only daughter, has recently become engaged. The Honourable Freddy Marriott would appear to be on the surface an admirable choice of fiancé. But the Dowager has doubts about him. Serious doubts. And now feather-headed Cynthia seems to be set on planning a trip to France. And she wants her mother to accompany her. The Dowager has never up till now encountered a situation she was unable to dominate and control through the sheer force of her personality. But she is about to come up against circumstances unparalleled in her experience.
Musically, the show has a roaring 1920s dance band score that nods to Gilbert and Sullivan with a twist of Kurt Weill and with just four performances scheduled we are expecting a sell out run long before the show opens - be prepared to book early!
