From the writer and creators of ‘Doreen’ comes another award-winning comedy – and a very different theatrical experience.
David Tristram’s hilarious insight into married life stars Gill Jordan (known to thousands on social media as the Black Country legend Doreen and an array of other comic characters) and Tom Roberts (whose TV credits include Emmerdale, Doctors, 2.4 Children, Coronation Street, Hustle).
Henry and Alice, a married couple with apparently only a pet goldfish in common, fantasise their way into outlandish situations to escape the tedium of their everyday lives but will anyone see the extraordinary twist coming?
Perhaps only Orca, the goldfish, and you – will finally discover what lies behind the Secret Lives of Henry and Alice.
A rare chance to see this award-winning comedy, directed by the author himself. Its universal themes and humour have led to the play being professionally staged in many other countries, including South Africa, Turkey, Germany, Australia, Mexico, Malta and Argentina.
Some strong language and adult themes. Suitable for 15+
Winner of the Golden Beak Comedy Awards
