Thark archiveLondon, 1927. The rebellious twenties are roaring right outside Sir Hector Benbow's Mayfair window. All he wants to do is to take Cherry, a 'good looker', out for a spot of dinner. His saucy liaison is scuppered when Lady Benbow and his ward Kitty arrive home unexpectedly. What's more, there are reports that Thark - the family home - is haunted! Hector, his plucky nephew Ronny, and the rest of the family set out to investigate. Will Thark live up to its spine-chilling reputation? Fast-paced, fruity and full of flappers, Ben Travers' Thark is a hilarious classic British farce combining sparkling witticisms and bold physical comedy with glamour, naughty romps and a hint of gothic spookery!
Performers Daniel Casper (Hook), Sophia Lorenti (Warner/Jones), Alexander Hopwood (Lionel Frush), Ellie Gill (Mrs Frush), Mathijs Swarte (Sir Hector Benbow), Robin Blell (Ronald Gamble), Charlotte Vassell (Lady Benbow), Natalia Lewis (Kitty Stratton), Kieran Slade (Whittle).
