CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
In a sunny, happy, optimistic and often absurd 1954, Timothy and Jane graduate from University. Under pressure from their parents they have to find a job and a husband, respectively. Timothy's family send him off to meet a series of influential and increasingly eccentric uncles, while Jane's mother lines up a series of eligible but dull potential husbands. A chance meeting with a tramp brings the couple together as his street piano - named Minnie - gives everyone an irresistible and unstoppable urge to dance. The tramp gives Timothy the job of looking after the piano for a month. Once the month is over and after all kinds of wonderful adventures - including a ride in a flying saucer - Minnie the piano is passed on to a new couple and Timothy and Jane's families are reconciled.
