While many of us are on our way to - or from - some summer fun, The Green Room Club are making their own.

After the success of Holiday Snap last year, the amdram group are presenting another farce for their summer show next week.

There Goes The Bride, by playwrights Ray Cooney and John Chapman, involves a young bride and groom who want a quiet wedding in a registry office, but mother and father want a big ‘do’ with lots of guests, high class catering and all the frills.

When the father of the bride gets hit on the head and starts imagining he can see a young flapper girl from the 1920s, things get more and more complicated.

The play was chosen by director John Metcalfe who has been involved either in directing or acting in most of the shows which the club has produced by Ray Cooney.

He took the lead role in this play when the club presented it back in the Nineties.

He said: “Because it worked so well last year, we wanted to so some comedy for the end of summer this year as well.

“I like Cooney. He is very clever and takes a long time to write his plays. This was written in the Eighties but is still very funny.

“Farce is not as popular as it used to be, but there is a lot of wit in this as well.”

There Goes The Bride, The Green Room, Carlisle, August 19-24. Tickets are available from Carlisle Tourist Information Office on 01228 598596.
