Witty and delightful adaptation of the film A Private Function brings home the bacon.
It's 1947 - austerity Britain, belts are being tightened, fair shares for all, the coldest winter in decades and a royal wedding. Sound familiar?
Adapted from Alan Bennett and Malcolm Mowbray's hilarious comic film 'A Private Function'; a tale that centres around Betty, an adorable pig who is being illegally reared to ensure that the local dignitaries can celebrate the forthcoming Royal Wedding with a lavish banquet while everyone else makes do with Spam.
This utterly British musical, full of eccentric characters, has a deliciously witty score by Stiles and Drewe and a marvellous cast of great British actors, headed by Sarah Lancashire as Joyce, Reece Shearsmith as Gilbert and, of course, Betty as Herself.
