THE HOSPITAL PLAYERS 

Scunthorpe's Oldest Amateur Dramatics Group - Established 1943

139th Production


Trumpets and Raspberries


By Dario Fo

Translated and Adapted by R. C. McAvoy and A-M. Giugni


Tuesday 1st - Saturday 5th October 1991

A terrorist attack and a body needing plastic surgery are the unlikely starting points for an evening of high farce from Italy's most popular modern playwright.

As he makes us laugh, Dario Fo pokes incisive fun at Bosses, The Police and The Judiciary. As always his medicine is bittersweet with a sardonic aftertaste.

This production is being directed by Jools Gilson from Hull University Drama Department.
