A rip-roaring revival of the rarely-seen Aldwych Farce, re-imagined for Park200.
London, 1927. Things are not going well for Hector Benbow. His secret liaison with a shop girl is scuppered by his wife’s early arrival home. What’s more, there are reports that Thark – the family home – is haunted. Hector, his plucky nephew Ronny, and the rest of the family set out to the house to prove the rumours wrong. But Thark promises to live up to its spine-chilling reputation...
One of Ben Travers' most celebrated Aldwych Farces is presented in a new adaptation by writer/actor Clive Francis. Directed by Eleanor Rhode, whose previous sell-out successes include A Life and the Time Out Critics' Choice productions of The Drawer Boy and Generous.
