I hope you have your funny bone switched on because the Rose Theatre in Kingston have a line up of hilarious shows for both adults and children, Whether you are a fan of pantomime or prefer the less sophisticated side of Shakespeare, prepared to be tickled by five blooming good comedies and blooming good prices.
If you are willing to sit on the floor, then you can get tickets for just £5. They may not be the comfiest seats in the house, but it will put you right up close to the stage. Bring your own cushion or fold up deck chair if you like. If you have kids, why not buy them floor tickets, while you buy a seat (£13-£28.50)? They will probably like sitting on the ground, and might feel 'grown-up' at not having to sit next to mum and dad. It is a useful way to budget for a big family night out.
They look like the angels from that Philadelphia Cheese advert, but Jenny Seagrove and Sara Crowe actually play Julia and Jane from Bill Kenwright's celebrated West End comedy, Fallen Angels. While their passionless husbands are off playing golf, Julia and Jane's 'mutual long-ago-lover' pays a visit. Out comes the champagne, the secrets, and the jealousy.
Get ready for a university reunion full of middle-aged men in dinner jackets. In attendance will be Roddy Moore, who was everyone's hero back in the day. As the night gets on and the wine disappears, a sophisticated evening soon turns wild.
Acted by Propeller, an all-male theatre company, William Shakespeare's The Comedy Full of Errors tells the story of two estranged twins separated at birth, who meet each other twenty-five years later. Hilarity ensues with moments of mistaken identity, wild mishaps, and a family crisis.
Propeller sends theatre back to the olden days when men played all the female roles. This should prove to make Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream even more amusing and confusing, as the fairies of the forest start playing matchmaker with their magic.
