Show 258: What Is It Like In The Backstage Of A Theatre?, 19th March, Mill Arts Centre, Banbury

The Orpheum Theatre needs a hit, and farce “Jack In The Box” could be it – as long as Stanislavskian actor Piotr can feel the part, Edith can get off her trolley, and Mr Banbury can persuade writer Mathilda Brown that they’d do it better than the Royal would. All is lost, retirement in Brighton looks likely, but at the last minute can the cast pull together a show that would garner a 6 star review?
