THE hilarious adult comedy One For The Road will mark a welcome return for Worcester’s St John’s Players at the Swan Theatre Studio next month.

After a break of several years the Players are back with a production of the comedy from Willy Russell, perhaps best known for his plays Shirley Valentine and Educating Rita.

The Players will take audiences back to the 1980s in this brilliantly observed comedy which has undercurrents of tragedy and pathos. Celebrating a milestone birthday, Dennis feels imprisoned in his middle class existence with his respectable wife Pauline and yearns to break out.

Matters come to a head with the arrival of Jane and Roger, the stalwarts of the social scene who epitomise all he detests about estate living.

Russell is a scouser and the Players have chosen to set the play in Liverpool, as they feel this does the greatest justice to his humour.

The script contains strong language and themes of a sexual nature which means it is probably only suitable for adults.

It runs from Wednesday, March 13 to Saturday, March 16 at 7.30pm and tickets cost £9.50 (concessions £8) from the Box Office on 01905 611427 or on the door.
