ENVILLE Street Dramatic Society is staging laugh-a-minute Situation Comedy in Stourbridge this week.

The play was penned by Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke - the writers behind TV sit-coms Father Dear Father, Man About the House, George and Mildred and Robin’s Nest; and it centres on two comedy writers suffering from writer’s block as the deadline for their new TV series looms.

Directed by retired secretary Wendy Hemming, the show runs at St Thomas’s Church Hall, Market Street, Stourbridge, from Tuesday April 20 to Saturday April 24.

Netherton warehouse supervisor James Tromans and Amblecote design engineer David Lavender star as writing buddies Charles Summerskill and Arthur Grey.

While Rowley Regis based trade union worker Sandra Harrold and Stourbridge mum-of-three Carey Esthop play writers’ wives Beryl Summerskill and Doris Grey.

Carey’s son Tom Dallaway, a student at Ridgewood High in Stourbridge, also appears as the comedy duo’s agent Maurice; and stage regular Heather Darby, a retired nurse from Quarry Bank, plays nosey neighbour Miss Trotter.

Tickets are available from Carey Esthop on 01384 372930 or Books Unlimited, Lower High Street, Stourbridge.
