Having A Ball
Directed by Derek Doddington
Hagley Park Events Village
“Having a Ball” is an outrageously funny adult comedy and an award-winning play set in the north-west of England.
Three men anxiously wait their turn for a vasectomy operation in a private clinic where nose-jobs and face-lifts are the stock-in-trade but, even before their operations begin, hilarious complications set in. None more so when each of them discovers that the surgeon is a woman. Throw in a cynical nurse and a wife who drinks and knows too much and you have a riotous, knock-out comedy!
“A bombshell of a production” The Observer
“Outrageous, thought provoking, embarrassing, hilariously funny…” Thurrock Gazette
Whilst Bleasdale is well known for his television work, The Boys from the Blackstuff (1982), and GBH (1991), Having A Ball won a number of awards whilst on a national tour.
Director Derek Doddington describes the piece as an hilariously funny and honest look at the different lives of people thrown together in this extremely intimate situation.
Destined for a sell-out run this is a must-see show, where bookings are essential.
