Coming April 16 - May 2 - riotous nights of comedy!

The very popular event, A Night at the Theatre with Rotary, will take place on Friday 17th April - the second night of DUETS. As usual, Rotary will be putting on a lot of food for the preshow, the intermission and the after-show crowds. You can either make your booking here in the usual way or you can call David Phipps at Rotary and make your booking through him (525-6564). See you there!


A gloriously funny examination of the chaotic world of love, relationships and why the grass is never greener. Duets is a hilarious tribute to the strength and madness of the human heart and comes to the Prospect Playhouse opening April 16th, 2015. Duets is by Peter Quilter, the author of the Broadway smash End of the Rainbow and the West End hit Glorious!

Four sets of characters, four crucial moments. Jonathan and Wendy are on a blind date and hoping to get it right this time even though they've never got it right before; Barrie is not really interested in women but Janet sees that as no reason to stop trying; Shelley and Bobby have decided to holiday in Spain to finalize their divorce whilst drowning in cocktails; Angela is marrying for the third time to the dismay of her brother Toby and amidst a barrage of bad omens and a dress resembling a parachute.
