The Dreadful Penny

by Ralph Saunderson

"Just four actors perform a hilarious and astonishing array of roles. This is a witty play with more action in one evening than most box set blockbusters can ever hope to achieve. In short - local, live theatre at its most enjoyable..."The Bath Chronicle 2017

"A furious pace, rapid costume and scenery changes plus non-stop jokes from the totally committed (they should be) cast make for a fun, unmissable evening." The Bath Chronicle 2013

About the play

Playing Up celebrated their 10th anniversary by devising this Victorian comedy adventure, which then toured between 6th and 30th November 2013 to venues in the South West. They then revised and extended the script for a production at The Mission Theatre, Bath in 2017.
