This year’s spring production from the Centre Theatre Players is the hilarious British farce Not Now Darling which will be stage at the Burgess Hall in St Ives from May 11-14.

Written by Ray Cooney and John Chapman, the show was written in the late 1950’s and enjoyed a long and successful run in London’s West End.

The play follows the adventures of the insatiable womanizer Gilbert Bradley, the boss of an exclusive West End fur salon. In order to give his mistress an expensive mink coat without upsetting her jealous husband, Gilbert agrees to sell it to her cheap. However, things do not go according to plan and the tricky transaction creates a hilarious and chaotic chain of events. The show is being directed by Chris Jones with Ed Martin, Sophi Berridge and Nick Thompson taking the lead roles supported by a cast of 11. Performances are at 7.30pm.

INFO: Tickets for the show are £9 and £11 and can be purchased from the One Leisure reception on: 01480 381184 or online:
