A summer music festival.  A bunch of 80s rockers on the comeback trail.  And an ageing lothario who is about to get his comeuppance. 

Shakespeare meets Spinal Tap as this classic middle class comedy gets the full OVO treatment with a live 80s soundtrack, tight trousers and big hair. 

Featuring 80s supergroup Spirit of Wantonness performing classics from the decade including Bonnie Tyler, Heart, Cyndi Lauper and Guns and Roses.

A riotous adaptation of what is often seen as the world’s first situation comedy by OVO‘s award winning Artistic Director Adam Nichols.

The smash hit of Summer 2020 returns for a limited run by popular demand!

★★★★

Daily Express

Delivered with don’t-give-a-toss energy and seasoned with pandemic jokes and other topical references, it is an inventive and laugh-out-loud remodelling of Shakespeare’s rush job.” 

★★★★

Daily Mail

A tireless sense of fun that no downpour could dampen.”
