'No Sex Please, We're British'
by Alistair Foot & Anthony Marriott

Directed by Roz Betts

22 - 29 July 2017

'Assistant bank manager, Peter Hunter, lives in a flat above his bank with his new, young bride Frances. When Frances innocently sends a mail order off for some Scandinavian glassware, what comes back is Scandinavian pornography. The two, along with the bank's frantic chief cashier Brian Runnicles, must decide what to do with the veritable floods of pornography, photographs, books, films and eventually girls, that threaten to engulf this happy couple. The matter is considerably complicated by the presence of Eleanor (Peter's mother), Mr. Bromhead (his boss), Mr. Needham (a visiting bank inspector) and Vernon Paul (a police superintendent). This popular comedy farce, starring Michael Crawford, ran in London for over eight years before transferring to Broadway. A film version, starring Ronnie Corbett was released in 1973.'
