Outside Edge

OUTSIDE EDGE

 

Hilarious English cricket comedy by Richard Harris which won Best Situation Comedy’ award. Set in a cricket pavilion but performed outdoors in the PumpHouse Amphitheatre.

Roger, the bossy captain of the team struggles to assemble his team to play against a visiting British Rail side. Those complications pall though, before others occurring among various wives and girlfriends. We soon discover that most of the blokes have dropped a googly of some sort in their relationships off the pitch.

There is trouble between Bob’s wife and ex-wife; Alex’s girl friend locks herself in the loo and Dennis flirts indiscriminately until his wife sets fire to his car. And that’s not all !  Blunt Maggie, a fearsome female bricklayer cuddles her tiny husband throughout while Miriam, champion tea-maker rebels against the bossy Roger and discovers what he got up to during an earlier team visit to Dorking.

Outside Edge had a fabulous West End run and was later made into a boisterous TV film.  Don’t miss this hilarious summer show in a perfect setting with several of Shoreside Theatre’s favourite performers.

Appointment With Death

A SHORESIDE THEATRE MID-WINTER
MYSTERY THRILLER

Appointment With Death

In Appointment with Death, Agatha Christie, the most widely published author of all time (apart from Shakespeare) has crafted a gripping tale using her own travels to source exotic locations. Following an earlier sold out season of her “And Then There Were None” we are excited to present a second Agatha Christie mystery play.

In Jerusalem, a wealthy but dysfunctional family joins a tour to the legendary city of Petra in Jordan. Will these outcasts of society mingle with their fellow travellers – an American millionaire, an Irish politician, German psychiatrist and an English aristocrat – All characters in their own right. Pity the poor tour guide as he contends with frayed tempers, arrogant demands, romantic liaisons, jealousy, hate and suspicion. All in the burning sun and never-ending sand.

“I’m going to fight you for him and I shall win. I’ve got two strong weapons on my side = youth and sex!”

Escape the chill of mid-winter. Join us in a ‘roaring twenties’ expedition to the Middle East and guess who has an appointment with death.
