JB Priestley’s gloriously timeless traditional British comedy about class and hypocrisy opens at the Garrick Theatre on the 19th October starring a fine ensemble of West End favourites including Maureen Lipman as Clara Soppit and Roy Hudd as the photographer Ormonroyd.
Set in 1908 in Clecklewyke in the heart of Northern England, three well-to-do West Yorkshire couples - the Parkers, Soppitts and Helliwells - married on the same day, at the same church, and by the same vicar, join to celebrate 25 years of blissful matrimony.
Disaster strikes with the shocking revelation that the vicar who married them wasn’t actually licensed – these pillars of the church and the community, aren’t as respectably married as they thought they were!
Home truths fly like confetti, an old flame returns and other uninvited guests start to call. With a photographer from the local paper due to arrive, a missing housekeeper and a doorbell that wont stop ringing, can the three couples keep a lid on their embarrassing secret or will the neighbours find out, destroying their standing in the community.

The Garrick Theatre is a West End theatre, located on Charing Cross Road, in the City of Westminster. It opened on April 24, 1889 with The Profligate, a play by Arthur Wing Pinero. In its early years, it appears to have specialised in the performance of melodrama, and today the theatre is a receiving house for a variety of productions. The theatre is named for David Garrick, considered the most influential Shakespearean actor.
