Bums On Seats: The Play

Directed By: Ben Cooper

Dates: 15th – 18th December 2021

“In a tatty provincial theatre, a new play called ‘Fecund’ is being staged. This uproarious adult comedy introduces everyone involved in a series of hilarious scenes linked by a chorus of usherettes. The stage manager has a blinding hangover, the leading actors range from pretentious to bitter to plainly incompetent, the new marketing assistant used to work for British Rail, the author is lecherous and unscrupulous and the others are just as outrageous. The second act centers on the audience, an equally mixed and unharmonious group. Chaos erupts just as the theatre’s major sponsor arrives. Funny, satirical and technically inventive, Bums on Seats is a treat for theater fans from start to finish.”

I didn’t know what to expect for this play, I had never hear of it. But, what a pleasant surprise. It was laugh out loud funny a fast pace comedy. The actors were excellent as always. Well done every one for bringing your audience an escape from the dreariness of Covid and replacing it with joy, surprise and laughter for the evening.

Really enjoyed the show, my partner and I were laughing alot, and the end scene was quite brilliantly scripted and performed. The enjoyment of the whole cast really came over to the audience, there was a real pride in the production. Wendy and the two other usherettes were a very entertaining trio. Will definitely be going to another show if this covid nonsense doesn't scupper it all. It was nice to be sat in a mask free environmemt enjoying a local production.
