Men of the World by John Godber
1 to 3 July @ 7.30pm
The smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd will return to Sharnbrook Mill Theatre tonight, as the award-winning venue prepares to open its doors once more with the hilarious and bitter-sweet play, Men of the World, by the king of observational comedy, John Godber.
In association with the Cytringan Players, coach drivers Larry, Stick and Frank will take you on a laugh-out-loud journey to Folkestone, the Channel Tunnel and the Rhine Valley, from 1 to 3 July.
They’ll share with you some of their most memorable trips taking on a multitude of passengers, from the dotty old complainers to the retired miners seeking excitement on too little money.
This will be the first in-house production for the theatre company since March 2020, and the team can’t wait to welcome audiences back.
Douglas Pope, its chairman said: “This day has been a long time coming, but we’re ready.
“Greasepaint won’t be the only thing you smell, as we’ve taken time in lockdown to paint the walls, the chairs, tables, in fact anything that we could.
“Not only that, but we’ve finally installed air conditioning into the theatre to make sure our patrons are as comfortable as possible.
“We’re prepared and overjoyed to be allowed to reopen.”
There are still a limited number of tickets available for the performance on Saturday 3 July. Tickets can be booked through the Sharnbrook Mill Theatre website.
