Synopsis: The play is set in Hollywood 1939 – Semi –independent mogul David O Selznick has just shut down the film production of Margaret Mitchell’s bestselling novel “Gone With The Wind” after three weeks of shooting. His reputation (not to mention his bank balance) is on the line and he is determined to have the rewrites completed in five days. He engages a somewhat reluctant script doctor Ben Hecht – possibly the only person in the US not to have read the novel. Together with his new director, Victor Fleming (poached from the set of The Wizard of Oz where he has been squabbling with the Munchkins and coming to blows with Judy Garland), the three are locked in Selznick’s office for five days with nothing to eat but a stockpile of bananas and peanuts to sustain them. What follows is a hilarious clash of egos as they endeavour to complete the script within the timeframe.

This musical is set, as the title suggests, during the Blitz (the aerial bombings during World War II) in the East End of London.
The story focuses on two families—the Jewish Blitzteins and the Cockney Lockes. Mrs Blitztein and Alfred Locke have adjacent stalls on Petticoat Lane. She sells herring and he sells fruit; they do not like each other. But their children George and Carol are in love with each other. There are more than 20 songs in this production, each one telling the story of war, love and friendship.

By Ray Cooney
Director: Susan Vincent
John Smith is a London cabbie with his own taxi, a wife in Streatham, a wife in Wimbledon and a knife- edged schedule!
He has been a successful, if tired, bigamist for three years, but one day gallantly intervening in a mugging, he is taken to hospital with mild concussion.
In the ensuing complications, aided by his unwilling friend Stanley, John tries bravely to cope with a succession of well-meaning but prying policemen, the press, two increasingly irate wives and a very gay neighbour, until he manfully confesses the truth, but no-one believes him!
28th—30th July, 4th—6th, 11th—13th August.
All performances commence at 8.00pm prompt.
