Wedding Preparations

The play is set in the lounge of the Marshall household during the preparation for the wedding of Judy, the Marshall’s only daughter.

But, Judy’s mother and Arthur Marshall’s estranged wife arrives back unexpectedly after an absence of three years.

Will the Wedding Go Ahead?

Throw in a forgetful Reverend, a drunken housekeeper, a lusty next-door neighbour and an old fashioned mother-in-law unaware of the Marshall marriage break-up and hilarious chaos is guaranteed.

Will the wedding even take place?

The Spike Players will reveal all from Saturday 15th at 8pm. Information from: 087 1801118
