BLACK Country performers are this week bringing 1980s film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels to the stage.

The Tab Operatic Society is staging the comedy musical for its 70th anniversary show - which is running at Stourbridge Town Hall until Saturday April 1.

Based on the 1988 comedy film starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, the play is set on the French Riviera and follows rival conmen Lawrence Jameson and Freddy Benson as they try to swindle a young heiress out of thousands.

The production is the society’s first at Stourbridge - after 33 years at Brierley Hill Civic Hall.
