Prepare to laugh your trilby off.

The 2008-09 season will be launched in our main house with Dick Barton: Special Agent, an affectionate send-up of the original war-time radio series. In this fast moving play with songs we meet arch-villain Baron Scarheart, the head of EFIL (Evil Foreigners in London). Together with the beautiful, but treacherous, Marta Heartburn, he plans to take over the country by poisoning the tea supply.

Can Dick, Jock and Snowy foil the Baron’s plan? How can they escape from being suspended from the top of Big Ben? And, just who is the mysterious Bobo?

By arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.

Tickets: £13 (Concessions £12)
