MON 27 MAR - SAT 1 APR

Out Of Order

MAIN AUDITORIUM

The Olivier Award-winning comedy returns.

When Richard Willey (Andrew Hall), a Government Junior Minister, plans to spend the evening with Jane Worthington (Susie Amy), one of the Opposition’s typists, in the Westminster Hotel, things go disastrously wrong - beginning with the discovery of a body trapped in the hotel’s only unreliable sash window.

Desperately trying to get out of an extremely sticky situation, Richard calls for his secretary, George Pigden (Shaun Williamson) who, through Richard’s lies sinks further and further into trouble with everybody and ends up going through an identity crisis. Things go from bad to worse with the arrival of Jane’s distraught young husband and with the addition of an unscrupulous waiter (James Holmes), a frustrated Hotel Manager (Arthur Bostrom), Mrs Willey (Sue Holderness) and Nurse Foster - things really come to a head!

Ray Cooney is today recognised theatrically and publicly as "the master of farce" (The Telegraph) whose credits include Run For Your Wife, Funny Money and It Runs In The Family. This stellar company includes Shaun Williamson (EastEnders, Extras); Sue Holderness (Only Fools & Horses, Green Green Grass); Andrew Hall (Butterflies, Coronation Street); Susie Amy (Footballers Wives); James Holmes (Miranda) and Arthur Bostrom (‘Allo ‘Allo!).
