A Black RAT Productions and Blackwood Miners’ Institute co-production
By Joe Orton
Directed by Richard Tunley
Designed by Sean Crowley
The team behind last year’s One Man, Two Guvnors present a wickedly delicious, original version of Joe Orton’s dark comic masterpiece.
Dennis works for an undertaker. Hal’s old Mum has just died. Ludicrous slapstick meets dubious morals as the two young friends stash the proceeds of a bank robbery in Mum’s occupied coffin, all whilst trying to avoid a crazed policeman, a gold-digging nurse and a grieving widower.
With the money safely hidden, there’s no place for Mum whose body keeps re-appearing at the most inopportune times and our reprehensible thieves stumble their way through with hilarious consequences.
Orton’s classic farce is a glorious mix of lunacy, political incorrectness and macabre humour. Sometimes shocking, sometimes baffling but at all times uproariously funny, this is a theatrical experience not to be missed!
