Neighbourhood Watch, Library Theatre
Tudor Players continue their British Life comedy season this week with Alan Ayckbourn’s 2011 play, which examines how a community response to a small crime gets hilariously out of hand.
Ayckbourn’s play is said to be full of laughs but also his darkest comedy to date.
It is full of richly-observed social commentary on what can happen if a concern for law and order spills over into vigilante activities and gated communities with security measures.
The Tudor Players cast includes Siobhan Daley, Ross Bannister, Andrea Howard, Kevin Cheesright, John Fereday, John Moran, Sarah Fox and Jenn Aspinall.
The director is Phil Gascoyne.
Neighbourhood Watch runs at the Sheffield theatre until Saturday.

Over in Rotherham, they’re Doing the Lambeth Walk this week until Saturday as the popular musical Me and My Girl comes to the Rotherham Civic Theatre.
Follow Cockney gentleman Bill Snibson on a memorable journey through this classic show, packed with well known songs like Leaning On A Lampost and The Sun Has Got His Hat On.
Cast member Chris Ayres said: Matt Ellis and Kirsty Bennie are brilliant as the leading pair! Matt is only 17 with a great singing voice, great dancer, and remarkable actor, giving his laidback, funny, cheeky and swaggering portrayal of Bill Snibson! Kirsty is a dream, knew all her lines and songs from day one of rehearsal, and is the perfect singer,actress,dancer to play Sally.”
