When We Are Married (2012)

Jul 7th to 14th 2012

Written by J. B. Priestley

Directed by Helen Withers

Twenty-five years ago, the Helliwells, the Parkers and the Soppitts were married on the same day by the same parson. They gather at the Helliwell home to celebrate their silver wedding. The new chapel organist tells them that he recently met the parson who conducted the triple wedding ceremony and reveals that he was not authorized to do so. Pandemonium breaks out when these pillars of society believe they have been living in sin for twenty-five years. One of the most famous comedies of the 20th century. Originally performed by the Criterion in Dec 1961/Jan 1962 and makes a fitting endpiece to our 50th celebrations. It has been continually performed since it was first written in 1938 and has just enjoyed a highly successful professional revival in the West End.
