Do you need a prescription for laughter? Or just a little cheering up? If so, then Cheltenham’s Everyman Theatre may just have the cure in the form of classic British comedy, Doctor in the House, which will be brought to life on stage by an all-star cast.
The new play has been adapted from the 1952 Richard Gordon novel, which later became a box office hit film, and will take up residence on the Everyman stage from Monday 16 to Saturday 21 July 2012.
Doctor in the House follows the fortunes of a new medical student, Simon Sparrow, who is forced to leave his first choice of lodgings to get away from his landlady’s amorous daughter.
He ends up living with three likable, but less-than-shining fellow students, including work-shy Tony Grimsdyke, played by the squeaky comedian Joe Pasquale.
The Cheltenham audience is sure to enjoy watching the short-tempered and demanding chief surgeon, Sir Lancelot Spratt, played by Holby City's Robert Powell, as he strikes terror into his inadequate undergraduates.
Having delighted audiences for generations, this promises to be British comedy at its best.
