Additional Info

“A sparkling, frothy farce, hugely enjoyable as laugh-out-loud entertainment. Unsworth’s pacey script is packed full of cracking jokes and wordplay. Some Mothers Do ’Ave ’Em can be enjoyed across the generations - this is a farce with a heart, and Unsworth’s revival is a welcome comeback for Frank Spencer” WHATSONSTAGE

“This adaptation of the 1970s sitcom, Some Mothers Do ’Ave ’Em, achieves something remarkable. It stays true to the original while delivering a fresh farce that’s entirely of its own. Guy Unsworth nods to the ‘plots’ of Raymond Allen’s sitcom but mixes these up for the play’s own, well constructed, ends, in this hilarious ensemble farce” THE STAGE

“Silly, endearing and you will laugh out loud” THE EXPRESS

“As for real, sustained belly laughs, this sweet show most definitely does ’ave’em” MAIL ON SUNDAY
