Peak District theatre group play it for laughs in classic comedy When We Are Married

In 1908, three respectable, well-to-do couples – married on the same day in the same chapel by the same minister – have gathered to celebrate 25 years of blissful matrimony… or so they all think at first.

The happy celebrations are brought to a sudden halt by a shocking revelation.

As home truths fly like confetti and conjugal rites turn to farcical fights, an evening of sparkling comic mayhem ensues in J B Priestley’s classic Yorkshire comedy, When We Are Married.

Hope Amateur Dramatic Independent Theatre (HADIT) are on stage at the Methodist Hall, Edale Road, Hope from Thursday, Spril 25 to Saturday 27.
