Thame Players presents this heartwarming reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling.

The Comedy Triple Bill on Sunday 23rd July at 7.45pm

The Comedy Triple Bill from the Baroque Theatre Company features three short plays in one hilarious evening.

1.Last Tango in Little Grimley written by David Tristram, one of the UK’s most popular and respected playwrights.  Membership of the local amateur dramatic society has dwindled drastically so time for dramatic action. “There’s only one thing that sells tickets these days” argues the Chairwoman. “Sex!” But how will the locals react to the promise of a sizzling sex comedy?

2. A Jolly Sinister Jape by writer Elliot Strange,is a pastiche 1920’s thriller with a plot that defies description. This is Famous Five fun for adults as Stubby, Ophelia, Biffy and Fatty find themselves trapped in a mysterious house during a thunderstorm.

3.David Tristram’s Last Panto in Little Grimley,a sequel to Last Tango in Little Grimley.  Last Panto features the same incompetent characters. The society members tackle the Christmas Pantomime with predictable riotous results. It’s Dick Whittington…but not as you know it!

The cast features Baroque Theatre Company founder and actress Claire Bibby from Kent, Plymouth born Patricia DerrickTalitha Willsea from Norwich, and Hampshire born Sally Blouet who makes her Baroque Theatre Company debut.
