STAGE Two Downham presents the hilarious comedy “Out of Order”, by Ray Cooney, at Downham Village Hall next week.

Featuring a talented cast of regulars on the Downham Stage, the eagerly-awaited production promises a welcome evening of fun, frolics and farce.

When Richard Willey, a Government Junior Minister, plans to spend the evening with Jane Worthington, one of the opposition’s typists, things go disastrously wrong, beginning with the discovery of a “body” trapped in the hotel’s only unreliable sash window.

Desparately trying to get out of an extremely sticky situation, Richard calls for his PPS, George Pigden who, through Richard’s lies, sinks further and further into trouble with everybody and ends up going through an identity crisis.

Things go from bad to worse with the arrival of Ronnie, Jane’s distraught husband and with the addition of an unscrupulous waiter, the Hotel Manager, Mrs Willey and Nurse Foster, things really come to a head!

The play runs from next Wednesday, April 25th, to Saturday the 28th, with performances at 7-30 p.m. Tickets cost £6 and are available from Clitheroe Tourist Information Centre (tel. 01200 425566) or Fran Osborne on 01200 423301.

Stage Two Downham is dedicating this play to the memory of Liz Wrigley, who died suddenly and who should have been in the production.
