Knaresborough Players are preparing for their next production.

The group are putting on Willy Russell’s “One for the Road” and the shows opens on Thursday, November 22 at the Frazer Theatre.

Willy Russell plays are famous for making you cry with laughter, the Players’ spokesperson said, and “One for the Road” promises to do just that.

The play tells the story of Dennis Cain, a man about to turn 40 and who really doesn’t want to.

Whilst Dennis is trying to reignite the dreams of his youth, wife Pauline is more concerned about keeping up appearances with their friends Roger and Jane Fuller, and on one mid-1980s summer evening, the two couples get together for an ill-fated dinner party with Dennis’ parents.

Directed by Beth Metcalfe, the play star Howard Corrin and Deborah Simpkin as Dennis and Pauline Cain, and Gavin Jones and Kathryn Leigh as Roger and Jane Fuller.

“One For The Road” is showing from Thursday, November 22 – Saturday, November 24 at 7.30pm, at the Frazer Theatre, High Street (behind Tesco), Knaresborough.

Tickets (£7 adults / £5 concessions) can be bought online from www.frazertheatre.co.uk, from the Old Chemist Shop in Knaresborough’s Market Place, or by telephone on (01423) 867901.

Please note: “One For The Road” contains strong language.
