Presented at Lowther Pavilion - 1 to 4 May 2019.

Directed by Bob Gemmell.





Haywire is a classic British comedy written by Eric Chappell, one of our top comedy writers and BAFTA award winner with an extensive list of works, plays and television, including the well-known TV sitcom “Rising Damp”!

The play tells the story of married bookseller Alec Frith, who is having an affair with his assistant Liz, and who has organised his domestic life so he can go to Spain on holiday without making his wife Maggie remotely suspicious.

What can possibly go wrong ?  PLenty !  On the doorstep, in dizzyingly rapid sucession, are Phoebe, Alec’s cantankerous mother who has discharged herself fromher old people’s home, Alec’s son, Jamie, with a broken ankle and daughter Mandy, heavily pregnant and refusing to marry the child’s father.

And last but not least - an incontinent puppy.
