Sizzling start for Little Theatre

The seaside theatre’s famous summer season gets off to a sizzling start with this hilarious comedy, written and directed by theatre legend Terence Frisby.

While Sheringham Little Theatre is well known for its diverse selection of theatre, film and entertainment, it’s perhaps most popular for its phenomenal summer repertory seasons which take place every year.

These are a series of five plays which all star a rotating ensemble of professional actors – allowing audiences to enjoy watching the same actors tackle multiple roles throughout the summer programme.

This year it all gets going on Friday 25 July with the madcap comedy Funny About Love. Set in a seemingly idyllic luxury London flat, life is turned upside-down for Rosie after her 52 year old husband Piers leaves her for his pregnant secretary Larissa. When Larissa’s husband Darren turns up, he and Rosie plan their revenge including fraud and Piers moving back to the marital home with his mistress!

The play is written by Terence Frisby, who also penned the worldwide smash-hit There’s a Girl in My Soup, which was turned into a 1970 film staring Peter Sellers and Goldie Hawn. The theatre is especially proud that Terence himself will also be directing the production, ensuring that his vision of the piece is authentically translated into Sheringham’s unique venue.

Debbie Thompson, Director of Sheringham Little Theatre says:  “This season is genuinely going to be a special event, and we can’t wait to welcome back theatre lovers from across the country to Sheringham Little Theatre. We certainly aren’t resting on our laurels – in fact, we’re rushing off our feet to ensure this season is of the absolute highest quality. Once you try it, you’ll see why our theatre is such a relevant and exciting Norfolk institution!”

Funny About Love begins on July 25th 2014 and runs until 30th July 2014. Information and tickets for this year’s summer repertory can be found by visiting:
