by Terry Johnson

Performance dates: 22 – 25 April 2020, 7.45 pm

While Eleanor wants a child, her willing partner, Richard, is too busy running the Dead Funny Society. But in a week when British comedy heroes Frankie Howerd and Benny Hill both kick the bucket, the society gathers for a celebration, which promises to be full of hilarity and laughter well, for everybody except the disgruntled Eleanor anyhow.

Terry Johnson’s hilarious comedy of mortality and marriage was premiered at the Hampstead Theatre in January 1994. This second edition was published for the West End revival in October 2016 at the Vaudeville Theatre, London.

All auditions take place at the Merrill Studio.

You do not have to be a member to audition.

An amateur production by arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
