Praise for Matthew Parker’s previous productions:

“Ghosts - bunkum! Have you ever met anyone who’s seen a ghost?”

“No; but I’ve never met anyone who hasn’t met someone who has…”

London, 1927. The rebellious twenties are roaring right outside Sir Hector Benbow's Mayfair window. All he wants to do is to take Cherry, a 'good looker’, out for a spot of dinner. His saucy liaison is scuppered when Lady Benbow and his ward Kitty arrive home unexpectedly. What’s more, there are reports that Thark – the family home – is haunted!  Hector, his plucky nephew Ronny, and the rest of the family set out to investigate. Will Thark live up to its spine-chilling reputation?

Fast-paced, fruity and full of flappers, Ben Travers' Thark is a hilarious classic British farce combining sparkling witticisms and bold physical comedy with glamour, naughty romps and a hint of gothic spookery!

 This sparkling new production is directed by Off West End Award winning director Matthew Parker. 

These performances will begin at 7:30pm, Saturday matinee at 3:00pm. Latecomers may not be admitted.

Run time: 2 hours plus interval

"Great fringe theatre - Upstairs from the pub, very intimate stage allowing the audience to become part of the performance."
