Out of Order, the Olivier Award-winning comedy is coming to the stage in Dartford.
The new production is directed by playwright Ray Cooney, who is celebrating seventy years in the industry. Starring Shaun Williamson (EastEnders, Extras) as George Pigden; Sue Holderness (Only Fools and Horses, Green Green Grass) as Mrs Willey; Andrew Hall (Butterflies, Coronation Street) as Richard Willey; Susie Amy (Footballers’ Wives) as Jane Worthington; and James Holmes (Miranda) as the Waiter.
When Tory Junior Minister Richard Willey tries to spend the evening with Jane, one of the opposition’s secretaries, in the Westminster Hotel, things don’t exactly go according to plan - starting with the discovery of a body trapped in the hotel’s only unreliable sash window. Enlisting the help of his hapless private secretary George Pigden, Willey’s sticky situation goes from bad to worse, and with the arrival of Jane’s distraught young husband and with the addition of an unscrupulous waiter, Mrs Willey and Nurse Foster things really come to a head.
Mr Cooney said: “Having directed my Olivier Award-Winning play in London and all over the world, and hearing all that wonderful raucous laughter from audiences, it has become one of my favourite plays. I’ve up-dated it to present day and, fortunately, the basic premise of a philandering MP is as likely today as it was when the play was originally written.”
The show will be at The Orchard Theatre on June 5 - 10 2017.
