Shoppers at a Lichfield furniture store are set for a glimpse of a new theatre production.
Cast members Greg Spencer and Rachel Duncan
The Lichfield Players will be hosting a photo shoot at Realwoods Traditional and Contemporary Furnishings on Saturday (January 12) to promote their new play Bedroom Farce. The Alan Ayckbourn comedy will have a four night run at the Garrick from January 30 to February 2. Director Barrie Atchison explained: “We really wanted to get some promotional shots of each couple in character and Realwoods kindly agreed that we could use their showroom. “Members of the public are very welcome to join us at the Britannia Enterprise Park venue at 2pm on Saturday to watch the shoot, talk to cast members and find out more about the play. We’re also very happy to answer any enquiries about future acting and backstage opportunities with the Players – and to make it even more interesting the cast will all be in costume, which means pyjamas and nighties at 2pm!” Bedroom Farce focuses on four couples and one incident-packed night. Ernest and Delia come home after a disastrous meal to celebrate their wedding anniversary in bed with pilchards, while Malcolm and Kate are getting ready for a big house-warming do. Jan’s invited but she’s at home with injured Nick who’s stuck in bed. Start the party and throw in the marital disasters of Trevor and Susannah and it’s not long before they weave in and out of other couples’ bedrooms with chaotic effect! Tickets to the show are available from the box office on 01543 412121 or by visiting

  1. yes …the 12th for 3 weeks ,nearly as good as when you said the photo shoot was in August 7 months after the play,

  2. However, all publicity very gratefully received. You would have been very welcome to draw it to Ross’ attention earlier Steve…..

  3. I’m sorry Steve, I wasn’t aware that I was not permitted to take some time off over Christmas and New Year from something I do voluntarily. I look forward to your contributions to the site in future…

  4. Much more polite than what my reply would’ve been! Steve: this is a site and news service run for free, nobody gets paid, and the people who make the news submit it.

    As Ross says: look forward to your contributions, sart marse.
