Haywire by Eric Chappell

Thurs 24th - Sat 26th May 2018

Tenterden Town Hall

A hilarious family-based sit-com written by the playwright of ‘Rising Damp’.
Alec Firth is having an affair with his assistant, Liz, and has organized his domestic
life so that they can go to Spain on holiday without making Alec’s wife,
Maggie, remotely suspicious. On the doorstep, in dizzyingly rapid succession
are: Phoebe, Alec’s mother, who has discharged herself from her old people’s
home; Alec’s son Jamie, with a broken ankle; and his daughter, Mandy, heavily
pregnant but not planning to marry the child’s father… What could possibly
go wrong?

Directed by Vernon Reeve.

Haywire was entered into Kent Drama Association’s Full Length Play Festival
2018, and won Runner Up for Best Wardrobe Achievement.
