Banbury Cross Players present Alan Bennett’s


BCP are one of the first amateur companies to perform this funny and  touching play after it completed its National Theatre tour in 2015.

Dorothy’s inheritance is an old, run-down mansion she can’t afford to  maintain. She and her sister have various attempts at resolving the issue,  including “gifting” it to the National Trust; selling it to a property  developer, or film-making of a less than salubrious nature with comings  and goings on the family four-poster bed. Underground rumblings from a  disused coalmine, the discovery of a large number of (still full) chamber  pots and an untimely visit from the Bishop make for a show full of fruitful  conflict.

Alan Bennett successfully blends satire with nostalgia to produce a  thought-provoking and entertaining piece of theatre.

Tickets: £12.50 | £11.50 Concession (Concession Weds & Thurs only)
