Doctor in the House

By Ted Willis

Based on the Novel by Richard Gordon

10th - 14th December 1968

Looking for a pre-Christmas tonic? Then may we recommend Doctor in the House?

Selected for our second production of the season, Doctor in the House, based on Richard Gordon’s first and funniest ‘Doctor’ book, is a delightful comedy. There is no symbolism, no message – in fact it is simply one of those all too rare sit-back-and-laugh plays.

Remember the film starring Kenneth More, Dirk Bogarde, James Robertson Justice…?

If you are willing to risk losing faith in the medical profession in exchange for an evening of laughter, then book early for Doctor in the House.
