THERE GOES THE BRIDE
By Ray Cooney and John Chapman
There Goes the Bride, written by comedy geniuses Ray Cooney and John Chapman, is three-quarters brilliant farce and one-quarter sweet musical. Those with a taste for romantic comedies will adore the delightful song-and-dance numbers, and farce-lovers will be in stitches as the hysterical story unfolds.
Directed by Catherine Morrison, choreographed by Vanessa Coley-Donohue, and stage managed by Anthony Stonechild, There Goes the Bride stars:
Emma Green as Ursula Westerby
Leah Ringwald as Judy Westerby
Don Glossop as Dr. Gerald Drimmond
Diana Sandberg as Daphne Drimmond
David Wallace as Timothy Westerby
Christian Sloan as Bill Shorter
Jill Raymond as Polly Perkins
Tom Kavadias as Charles Babcock
There Goes the Bride has all the standard elements of a Ray Cooney farce that we have come to expect: mistaken/assumed identities, confused characters, and yarn spinning that spins out of control. Currently in rehearsals, this production will be cracking up audiences from February 22 to March 22.
“A fiendishly clever farce that gets madder and funnier as it goes along…Has pace, precision and wit.” ~ London Daily Mirror
