Wife Begins at Forty

The Norbury Theatre (1998)

We are delighted to be returning to the Norbury for our annual visit.  This year we have chosen a comedy which I hope you will find very amusing.  It’s modern and has a touch of pathos.

Rosemary Phillips, Barry Imms, Sue Imms and Fred James have appeared in our previous successful productions at this theatre.  Paul parker and Russell Colman make their Norbury debut and I’m sure you will love Toby Parker.

I directed the same cast in this very funny play with great success at the Conquest Theatre bromyard.

Enjoy the show and thank you for your support.
