Premiering a new adaptation of a 19th century French farce will be an exciting end to the spring season for Hasland Theatre Company.
Hotel Paradiso has been given a fresh translation by director Christopher Selbie, who is a new member of the company.
Christopher trained at Bristol Old Vic Theatre in the early 1970s and has worked extensively in both England and the US, teaching drama, theatre and creative writing.
Hotel Paradiso features a mixture of both new and seasoned Hasland performers on stage and as in the true tradition of a good farce, there will be mistaken identities and physical comedy as an assortment of refined people steal through the halls and rooms of a cheap hotel intent on secret assignations.
The production will be staged at The Playhouse, Storforth Lane, Hasland, from May 15 to 23. Tickets £7.50 are available online at www.haslandtheatrecompany.co.uk or from the box office on 01246 272271.
