NEWBERRY — “No Sex Please, We’re British,” England’s longest running comedy, is coming to Newberry by way of Newberry Community Players.
“No Sex Please, We’re British” is a British farce written by Alistair Foot and Anthony Marriott. It premiered in 1971 and played to full houses until 1987, totalling 6,761 performances.
The story follows an unassuming newly married couple, Peter and Francis Hunter, who live in an apartment above the bank that Peter works at. Francis innocently sends off an order for what she believes to be Scandinavian glassware.
When the Hunter’s home is flooded with pornography in a farcical misunderstanding, the frantic couple’s problems multiply and are compounded by the presence of Peter’s mother, his boss, a visiting bank inspector, and the police superintendent.
“No Sex Please, We’re British” will be performed by the Newberry Community Players at 7 p.m. Feb. 10, Feb. 11, Feb. 17, and Feb. 18 at the Ritz Theatre, 1511 Main St. The age restriction has been lifted for this show.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $23 for students (or for groups of 10 or more in same seating).
