Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy Neighbourhood Watch comes to Huntingdon’s Commemoration Hall later this month.

Huntingdon Drama Club will perform the play, which has enjoyed successful runs in New York and London and tells the story of seemingly mild-mannered Christian brother and sister Martin and Hilda who move in to the Bluebell Hill Estate.

According to neighbours, Rod and Dorothy, society has broken down and when Martin’s beloved garden gnome Monty is destroyed by vandals, a band of angry residents form a Neighbourhood Watch group get together to bring order back to the estate.

Four of the cast of Neighbourhood Watch make their debut appearances for the production – Andrew Grannell plays Martin, with Richard Fitt, Jo Travers-Brown and Sarah-Jane Charlton as neighbours Rod, Amy and Magda. They are joined by Josephine Hussey as Hilda, Caroline Molony as Dorothy, Phil Green as Luther and Dean Laccohee as Gareth.

INFO: The production runs from November 26-28 at the Commemoration Hall and performances are at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 and concessions and group rates are available, contact Ticket Source on 0333 666 3366.
