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 next 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.

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!
