LYCEUM Theatre Oldham continues their season of British Comedy with a play that has been hitting the funny bones of all ages for 80 years.
Even after eight decades, J B Priestley’s ‘When We Are Married’ is as relevant today as when it was first written.
Poking fun at Victorian values, the play also takes a pop at marriage, society, the press and tradition when three couples, who thought they had been married for 25 years, find their settled, secure, respectable lives have been a sham.
With a large cast and a fantastic script, this is a perfect play for the talented enthusiasts at Lyceum Theatre Oldham and will run from April 13-21.
Director Karen Barton, whose recent credits include another Priestley play ‘Time and the Conways’, is excited to be back at the Lyceum.
She said: “’When We Are Married’ is about relationships of all sorts. It packs a punch at snobbery, self-importance, bullying, hypocritical behaviour. All of this seems highly relevant today.”
Lyceum Theatre Oldham presents ‘When We Are Married’ by J B Priestley from April 13-21, 2018 starting at 7.30pm (no performance Sunday, April 15).
