There Goes The Bride

Production Genre

Production Date

Farce

2023 June

When harassed advertising executive Timothy Westerby bangs his head on the morning of his daughter’s wedding, he comes round to find himself in the company of Polly Perkins, a 1920’s Flapper Girl, straight out of his latest advertising campaign. It soon becomes all too clear that no-one else can see or hear her, and when another bump on the head transports Timothy back to 1926 and the Savoy Hotel, the wedding preparations disintegrate into chaos and friends and family attempt to lead him back to reality and his daughter down the aisle before the newly arrived in-laws abandon the wedding.
Reviews of the original production described “A fiendishly clever farce that gets madder and funnier as it goes along” and “The true spirit of farce takes over”.
