NO SEX PLEASE WE'RE BRITISH - FMS

NO SEX PLEASE - WE’RE BRITISH!

The classic British comedy comes to Fareham!

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE USE

Fareham Musical Society are staging "No Sex Please We're British", at Ferneham Hall from 9 - 11 June (7.30pm with a Saturday matinee 2.30pm), to continue their very successful four years of "Fawlty Towers" comedy plays. They are using most of the same actors and production team that have enjoyed so much success up to now. This play is still the longest running comedy play in London's West End. And the cast have had so much fun rehearsing this play and even though it's set in the 70s the comedy is just as funny today. 

The farce surrounds an assistant bank manager, Peter Hunter, who lives in a flat above his bank with his new bride Frances. When Frances innocently sends a mail order off for some Scandinavian glassware, what comes back is Scandinavian pornography. The two, along with the bank's frantic chief cashier Brian Runnicles, must decide what to do with the veritable floods of pornography, photographs, books, films and eventually girls that threaten to engulf this happy couple. The matter is considerably complicated by the presence of Eleanor (Peter's mother), Mr. Bromhead (his boss), Mr. Needham (a visiting bank inspector) and Vernon Paul (a police superintendent).

The part of Brian Runnicles was first played on the London stage by Michael Crawford. He later adopted a similar persona as Frank Spencer in Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em. David Jason later took over the role of Brian Runnicles. Frances Hunter was played initially by Belinda Carroll. The play has also been produced internationally, such as in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur in May 2015 by the British Theatre Playhouse.
