Romance and laughs in new play

Kissing Sid James
Kissing Sid James

Robert Farquhar’s funny and heart-warming comedy Kissing Sid James can be seen at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre on Wednesday, April 30, from 7.30pm.

It is to be performed by Reform Theatre Company, the group that brought Guildhall Theatre audiences the plays Housebound, My Favourite Summer and Like A Virgin.

Eddie, a stationary salesman of some repute, flash car, flash suit, with flash chit chat, meets Crystal, the local casino croupier, gorgeous, funny, confident, the girl of his dreams, but a girl with a past.

A phone call later, he invites her for a getaway break and the two would-be lovers head for a romantic rendezvous in a coastal B and B, where Eddie tries to woo and impress the new love in his life.

Will opposites attract and a love life blossom, or will it be a wet weekend, with no candy floss and love hearts.

This is a winning romantic comedy with loads of laughter and romance thrown in, and, with Sean Connery, Karaoke and Scrabble all figuring, the couple are set for a weekend to remember.

Tickets for the show are priced at £13, with concessions available, and can be purchased from the Derby LIVE box office on 01332 255800 or online at
