A Sidecar Named Despair

Thu 26 Sep 2019 - Sat 28 Sep 2019
  • Duration:2 hours (inc. interval)

Estranged brothers Dick & Julian never did really get on. Since the death of their father, they’ve been forced together, living in their old family home while they try and rebuild their lives and their dad's rusty old motorbike and sidecar.

Having been working in the States as an accountant, Julian has returned suddenly, and won't talk about his time there. He starts getting threatening messages, and it becomes clear that his business "associates" are not to be trifled with, and that his past is catching up with him, putting both their lives in jeopardy. It's "The Odd Couple" versus the Mob!

A black comedy with original music by Pat Whymark, featuring Julian Harries and Richard Mainwaring reprising the characters they created for Common Ground's 2013 comedy, Stuff In The Attic 

“Pat Whymark’s latest play is very funny indeed” East Anglian Daily Times
