Are You Being Served

ARE YOU BEING SERVED

Set in a fictional London department store, Grace Brothers, it has all the ingredients of farce especially when the benevolent employer sends the staff of the Men & Women's Department son a subsidised holiday to a one star hotel on the Costa Plonka, whilst store refurbishment is carried out.<p>
"Are You Being Served" the stage play is  fast moving with a  good amount of slapstick comedy with a lot of innuendo in the script with camp humour making it  wonderfully entertaining from the start to the final curtain.

We hope to see you there!
