Rookery Nook

6 May 2019 @ 7:30 pm


Newlywed Gerald has arrived to stay at ‘Rookery Nook’, a holiday cottage, presided over not only by a harridan of a housekeeper, Mrs. Leverett but worse, by his sister-in-law Gertrude.

After Gerald has gotten rid of everyone for the night a pretty girl turns up in nothing but pyjamas, demanding to be rescued from her tyrannical German stepfather. So, compromising a scenario must be kept secret at all costs. All would be fine were it not for nosy neighbours, dastardly friends, fearful relatives and impending wives.


Wednesday 21st to Saturday 24th August at 8.00pm Tuesday 27th to Saturday 31st August at 8.00pm Matinee each Saturday at 2.30pm
