Members of Whitby Amateur Dramatic Society are going Haywire in preparation for their summer offering at Whitby Pavilion Theatre.

The company is presenting the Eric Chappell comedy Tuesdays and Thursdays from August 1 until September 10.

Haywire, is the society’s second summer run comedy by Chappell, who is most famous for Rising Damp, Home to Roost, Duty Free, The Squirrels and Only When I Laugh.

The playwrightcame to see last year’s production by the company of Wife after Death.

Directed by Alison Steele, assisted by Nick Tann, the comedy involves bookshop owner Alec, played by Ian Dobson, arranging to go on holiday to Spain with his assistant Liz, Katrina Stead, while his wife, Anne Dobson, goes on a trip to, “three capitals in five days - and the tulip fields”.

In the tradition of all farce, all does not go to plan.

A puppy, Alec’s mother, Sally Jones , his son, Ivan Hall, and pregnant daughter, Laura Moralee, all turn up unannounced! Cue: mayhem.

Tickets cost £7, £6 concession and are available on Whitby (01947 458899).
