Preview - Move Over Mrs Markham - Royalty Theatre


The Royalty Theatre will continue their 2017/18 season with Ray Cooney and John Chapman’s comic caper, Move Over Mrs. Markham.

The frantic farce follows the attempts by three pairs of lovers to get use of Philip and Joanna Markham’s empty flat one evening to carry on their affairs. Joanna’s best friend Linda wishes to woo her civil servant beau, while Philip’s business partner Henry, Linda’s husband, hopes to “entertain an important client” while no-one else is about.  Interior designer Alistair and au pair Sylvie have their own plans – and it’s not long before the evening has descended into a maelstrom of deceptions, misunderstandings and sauerkraut sandwiches.

Director John Appleton says, “Move Over Mrs. Markham is a good old-fashioned British farce – it’s high-energy, with a touch of the risqué, but above all, hilarious.  We’ve all had great fun in rehearsal with the play and I’m sure audiences will love it.”
