Directed by Gwen Wilks

  This is one of Alan Ayckbourn's funniest and best loved comedies. It centres on a diffident widower who attempts to escape from his loneliness by joining a local amateur light operatic society. After his audition he is cast in a small role in the Beggars Opera but he eventually triumphs as the lead MacHeath and becomes the centre of attention in more ways than one.

  His attempts to integrate into the Company lead to many side splitting misunderstandings, his impact on the society is devastating, but... the show must go on
