A STOURBRIDGE dramatic group is presenting an evening of Tom Stoppard comedy this week.

Enville Street Dramatic Society is staging the dramatist's radio play If You’re Glad I’ll be Frank and the dramatised play The Real Inspector Hound at Amblecote's Holy Trinity Church Hall from April 3 to 6, with performances starting at 7.30pm each night.

A prequel to the radio play, penned by the show's director Ian Howarth and entitled Radio Amblecote, will precede the presentation of If You’re Glad I’ll be Frank which sees bus driver Frank trying to free his lost wife from the clutches of the Post Office.

Ian Howarth said: “When I first suggested ideas for this evening I did not envisage writing a brand new play set in a radio studio. It soon became clear that we needed something to complement our first presentation."

Ian's prequel is set in April 1966 and he said: "The staff of a small provincial radio station find themselves in a fix over who is going to read the play.

"When the time comes they all have to step up to the mark."

Tickets for the show can be booked by calling 01384 356600 or 07941 906069.
