Par for the Course

A very British comedy by the popular and renowned playwright Peter Gordon.

Directed by Daphne Breakspear

Note: Not suitable for children 12 years and under

Wednesday 27th to Saturday 30th January 2016 at 7.30pm

Captains' Day at the Seven Lakes Golf Club gets off to a bad start when the mens' Captain is indisposed. Club Secretary, Simon, relishes the chance to take over but is soon thwarted by the arrival of Vice Captain, Nick and his girlfriend Tiffany. The Ladies' Captain Fran and the enthusiastic but hopeless Barry add to the confusion as a series of disasters mount. With the unexpected arrival of Simon's wife Laura, tensions build and things go from bad to worse and the characters soon discover that personal relationships OFF the course are more dangerous than the hazards ON it - love or loathe golf, it will never seem quite the same again!!
