Competition: Win tickets to see the world premiere of Hatched ‘n’ Dispatched at the Park Theatre

by -

World premiere of a new play by Gemma Page and Michael Kirk

A mucky romp through the morals, memories and music of the 1950s

You are invited to party… The Needham family have buried Uncle Arthur and christened Baby Clifford in a double booking at the church. As Dorothy-Mavis takes charge of preparations for the after-party, tensions erupt and toxic secrets threaten to destroy her family.

But she is not a woman to let family love come between her and social respectability – whatever the cost. Set in the industrial north of England, this black comedy takes place over one evening in early Autumn, 1959.

From the two-time Whatsonstage Award nominated producer of New Boy and Lifecoach (Best New Comedy, 2009 and 2010) Stuart Piper. The cast includes Wendi Peters (Cilla, Battersby Brown, Coronation Street, and on stage, Oh What A Lovely War and White Christmas in the West End), Diana Vickers (lead in The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, Holly in The Duck House both at Vaudeville Theatre, X-Factor semi-finalist), Vicky Binns (Molly Compton in Coronation Street, Ollie in Emmerdale).

Hatched ‘n’ Dispatched is at the Park Theatre, Clifton Terrace, London from September 1-26
