Lyceum Theatre Oldham to launch 90th anniversary celebrations by revisiting first ever play

LYCEUM Theatre Oldham is opening its 90th Anniversary Season of Celebrations with a double bill of comedy that incudes the first ever play performed by Lyceum Players in 1928.

‘SUNSET’ by Jerome K Jerome – best known for iconic novel ‘THREE MEN IN A BOAT’ – is a quirky love triangle, with recognisably laughable caricatures.

Director Jon Comyn-Platt promises some updating of this short play, which will have a 1920s feel and some modern twists.

On the same set on the same night, Ian Orry will direct Tom Stoppard’s early classic comedy ‘THE REAL INSPECTOR HOUND’.

Set on a stage on a press night, Stoppard literally turns the set round making the audience into voyeur, critic and almost into actors themselves.

Each evening will begin with a short talk by Lyceum Committee Member Mike Russell, whose knowledge of and passion for the little theatre is second to none.

The shows run from September 21-29, with performances starting at 7.30pm (no performance on Sunday, 23 September).

Season Tickets are on sale now for only £8 per ticket, saving £1 on full price seats. Tickets for individual productions go on sale on Monday August 27.

Tickets can be booked online: or call the Box Office: 0161 628 2118.
