The Weekend

20 - 23 November

Witham Dramatic Club

The Weekend

A comedy by Michael Palin

Cantankerous, misanthropic, miserable, world-weary ... think of an adjective synonymous with ‘crabby’ and it will apply to Stephen Febble. So when he is faced with the prospect of a family gathering he does his best to be difficult – not that he sees it like that, of course. When his daughter, her dreary husband, their precocious child and, not least, the dog come to stay for the weekend it's enough to make him reach for the whisky and the sarcasm!

  • Performances start at 7.45pm. Doors open at 7.15pm
  • Tickets £12.50. Concession £10.50 (Wednesday and Thursday only).
  • Tel. 0345 017 8717
  • Book online at withamdramatic.co.uk
  • Tickets also available from the Visitor Information Centre at Witham Town Hall
