Written by the renowned Jimmie Chinn, Beverley Theatre Company will stage performances from 5 to the 8 June.
Sylvia’s Wedding tells the story of Gordon who suddenly decides to propose to Sylvia after ten years of dating. His decision to propose throws his own family and that of his brides to be into turmoil.
Joyce and Vic, Sylvia’s parents, are hardly the sort of people Gordon’s pompous father Stanley wants his family connected with while Vic feels much the same way in return.
Sylvia’s best friend, Yvonne, isn’t much help either. She is all too ready to deflate Sylvia’s joy with her cynical, world-weary comments.
Myrtle, Gordon’s mother, is quite looking forward to making the dresses and sorting out the catering. The same can not be said for Joyce who is more concerned about looking after Hoppy, the one-legged budgie.
Against the odds, the two warring families cooperate with the wedding preparations. While everything looks to be going like it is going well Fate intervenes.
Will the wedding go ahead? Will the secret of Stanley’s trips to Skegness be revealed? Most importantly, will Joyce’s toilet ever stop flushing?
The spirited comedy of the early scenes gives way to bitter irony and poignant emotion. It is written with all of Jimmie Chinn’s customary wit, humanity and keen observation.
With a script reminiscent of a multitude of favourite sitcoms, These include The Royle Family, Keeping up Appearances and A Bit of a Do. There is certainly something for everyone in this production.
