An ingenious and original one-man adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s “Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime” is being staged at The Chequers pub in Feltwell next Friday, February 26, at 7pm.

The production by Rocket Theatre is being served as the main course in a special evening of mystery and crime to indulge and delight the audience.

This is a gripping tale of love, honour, duty, fortune-telling and murder! Lord Arthur takes his marriage vows extremely seriously, but when he has his fortune told just weeks before the wedding, his destiny simply cannot be ignored…

This hilarious retelling of a classic story revels in the wit of Wilde, while borrowing (rather cheekily) from Wodehouse, to create a wicked black comedy that positively fizzes with fun. Join Lord Arthur and his valet, for an evening of ludicrous indulgence.

The performance has been designed as a ‘meal and a show’ event, to take place within a pub setting.

Rocket Theatre, based in Manchester, has been performing throughout the UK since 1995.

Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime has been its most popular show to date with more than 130 performances around the country.

Tickets, which must be booked in advance, are £20 including a two-course meal and for further information and meal choices call the box office on 01842 827200

This event is organised in partnership with Creative Arts East with funding by Arts Council England, Norfolk County Council and West Norfolk Borough Council.
