“No Sex, Please – We’re British!”

Poster for “No Sex, Please – We’re British!”

Bishopstoke Players’ autumn production this year is the longest-running British comedy, ‘No Sex, Please – We’re British!’.

This riotous comic farce notched up a staggeringly successful sixteen-year run in London’s West End. It premiered in 1971 and ran to 6,761 performances.

Peter and Frances could reasonably expect to look forward to a calm, happy start to their married life. Owing to an innocent mistake, however, they find themselves inundated with dubious material from the ‘Scandinavian Import Company’. Senior bank officials, Peter’s snobbish mother, and a prim, respectable bank cashier become inextricably entangled in the rumbustious events that follow.

Director Barry Kitchen said, “After directing ‘The 39 Steps’ last year, I was looking for another top-notch comedy and what better than ‘No Sex, Please – We’re British!’?”

Performances are in Bishopstoke Memorial Hall on Thursday 28th to Saturday 30th September at 7.30pm. Tickets (available from 1st August) are £8 (£6 for those aged 16 or under) and are available at buytickets.at/bishopstokeplayers, email boxoffice@bishopstokeplayers.uk or phone (07871) 006551.

This production marks Bishopstoke Players’ 70th anniversary and, like all previous productions, proceeds will be donated to the children’s charity ‘Action for Children’.

This amateur production of “No Sex Please – We’re British!” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
