Spring is in the air, the sun is shining and the bells are ringing for Chapel Players’ next production - Perfect Wedding.

It’s a hilarious comedy by Robin Hawdon, about the wedding of a young couple that could well go off without a hitch!

Rachel (Nichola Hallows) and Bill (Rob Fotherby) have booked the bridal suite of a country hotel for their special day but, as you might have guessed, things don’t go to plan.

It starts badly, as the groom wakes up after his stag night with a stinking hangover, and a strange woman (Becky Simpson) in his bed.

In his bumbling attempts to get rid of her before his wife-to-be turns up, he enlists the help of best man (David Cooper), who agrees to pretend the strange woman is his girlfriend - without telling his real girlfriend!

The pair end up caught in a tangled web of confusion, lies and mistaken identity.

With a feisty chambermaid (Helena Jodrell) and an emotional mother-of-the-bride (Jean Mowl) getting in on the act, the chaos and comedy draws to a spectacular conclusion.

The play is directed by Dave Mowl, and will be performed at Chapel Playhouse on Eccles Road on Friday May 13 and Saturday May 14, and Friday May 20 and Saturday May 21.

Tickets are priced £8 for adults and £6 for concessions, and are available in advance from Halls Mica Hardware, Market Street, Chapel, or on the door.
