Disaster strikes in Priestley’s play about marriages

Ifield Barn Theatre is offering a brand new production this month.

When We Are Married, written by J. B. Priestley, is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French LTD.

Set in 1908 in the heart of Northern England, three well-to-do West Yorkshire couples – married on the same day, at the same church, and by the same vicar – join to celebrate 25 years of blissful matrimony.

However, disaster strikes with the shocking revelation that the vicar who married them wasn’t actually licensed.

These pillars of the church and the community aren’t as respectably married as they thought they were!

Home truths fly like confetti, an old flame returns and other uninvited guests start to call.

With a photographer from the local paper due to arrive, a missing housekeeper and a doorbell that won’t stop ringing, can the three couples keep a lid on their embarrassing secret, or will the neighbours find out, destroying their standing in the community?

Performances takes place from July 16 to 19. Weekday performances start at 8pm. Saturday performances start at 3pm and 8pm.

Tickets are £9 and £7 for IBTS members and children (under 14).

Tickets are available by phone on 01293 522763 (24 hour answer machine) or from the theatre on Sundays from 12pm to 2pm.
