A Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch, Salisbury Playhouse and New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich production
A smash-hit comedy about preparations for a family wedding.
Rachel and Scott are getting married. They’re also buying a house together. But when the house price goes up, their plans for a dream wedding have to be downsized.
Rachel’s mother, however, has other ideas. What if the family could join forces and make it a wedding to be proud of? With a marquee in the back garden, the pub band and two fully-functioning portable loos, surely the day will pass without a hitch?
This laugh-out-loud comedy about preparations for a family wedding was a huge hit when it premiered at Salisbury Playhouse in 2014. Now you have a chance to enjoy one of the biggest new comedies in years. Features a live wedding band.
Chris Chibnall is the creator of ITV’s Broadchurch and from 2018 will be Head Writer and Executive Producer of BBC TV’s Doctor Who.
