A summer comedy play season will light up Chesterfield’s Pomegranate Theatre.

Tabs Productions and Rumpus Theatre Company will co-produce two productions.

First up is Rumpus’s presentation of Changing Rooms which will be staged from May 9 to 13.

The farce was penned by Marc Camoletti who wrote Boeing Boeing and Don’t Dress for Dinner.

It centres on a Government minister who wants to spend the weekend with his mistress while his wife wants to spend it with her toy boy, Their housekeeper longs for some time to herself away from her employers - but when each of them returns to the same chic apartment thinking the coast is clear, pandemonium ensues.

Tabs Productions will present hit comedy Two and Two Make Sex at the Pomegranate from May 16 to 20.

Set in the early Seventies, it focuses on a man in his fifties, his lover who is not and his wife who decides to solve the equation. Add in an agony aunt girlfriend, a boyfriend with a penchant for older woman and you have the perfect solution....or do you?

The cast includes Chesterfield audiences’ favourites, including Karen Henson, Susan Earnshaw, Sarah Wynne Kordas, David Gilbrook, David Martin and John Goodrum … along with newcomer Emma Vickery.

Newly-weds David Martin and Emma Vickery have come straight to the Pomegranate with no honeymoon!
