The Priory Theatre in Kenilworth are bringing what they describe as a “deliriously funny play” by celebrated playwright Tom Stoppard to audiences this month.

Rough Crossing takes the stage at the theatre in Rosemary Hill from Wednesday March 19 until Saturday March 29.

Directed by Steve Boden, the play follows acclaimed playwrights Sandor Turai and Alex Gal, who are embarking on a transatlantic journey from Cherbourg to New York.

Their new musical comedy is all but finished: what could possibly go wrong?

But as both ship and show hit heavy weather, the line between reality and musical comedy becomes increasingly blurred.

Priory spokesman Kevin Coughlan said: “This deliriously funny play is an affectionate tribute to the Golden Age of sophisticated comedy.

“With jokes that would have delighted Coward, and songs that Irving Berlin might have penned, Rough Crossing is a feast of verbal wit, physical comedy, and sheer theatrical virtuosity.”

Performances are at 7.30pm each evening, except Sunday. Tickets cost between £9.50 and £10.50. To book, call 863334 between 2pm and 8pm.
