Playing Away

Hatfield Spotlight Theatre Group Presents:

A comedy by Janet Shaw

It’s darts time again at the Frog and Duck in downtown Barnsley. The girls’ team have made the final again and the lads, well the lads are struggling. The excitement of the competition is overshadowed when a routine medical examination jeopardises the rock-solid marriage of landlord Alan and his wife Kath.

Kath is pregnant, but Alan has had a vasectomy! Could it be that someone at the pub, other than the darts team, has been playing away?

On the lads team, it’s honesty time for Gary, when he has to face the truth about himself, and it’s crunch time for compulsive liar Danny, when he meets his female match.

Throw in an interfering mother-in-law for Alan, an unintelligible Irish man and the town’s worst dieters and you have the recipe for a night of hilarity, fused together with just the right amount of pathos.

Thursday 21st – Friday 22nd June – 7:15pm & Saturday 23rd June – 2pm & 7:15pm

From London to Broadway Two and a Half Showbiz Girls* will help you lose yourself in over 25 songs from everyone’s favourite musicals, including numbers from Wicked, Hairspray, Les Mis, Guys and Dolls, Oklahomaand many more! But more than that, while they entertain you, they will make you laugh till you cry as they embarrass each other (and themselves) with stories of home life, stage school, auditions, successes and spectacular failures. The very things that have brought all …. two and half of them, to a theatre near you.

Regardless of whether you are a West End regular, a theatre novice or a star struck hopeful, these girls will educate, captivate and enchant you.
