A riotous West End comedy of mistaken identity is heading to the Buxton Opera House stage.

Who’s Who!, a knock-about slapstick with a bit of class, is written by the acclaimed masters of farce, Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall, of Billy Liar, Worzel Gummidge and Jeffrey Barnard Is Unwell fame.

The 70s classic arrives in Buxton for two performances, on Tuesday April 15 and Wednesday April 16, each evening at 7.30pm.

In Who’s Who!, old friends Bernard and Timothy find themselves staying in a posh hotel, one to have an affair with girlfriend Helen, the other to help him cover it up.

But when wife Joanna turns up, events spiral inevitably towards unexpected consequences with hilarious conclusions.

The production, brought to the Water Street venue by Rumpus Theatre Company, remains faithful to the era with authentic sets and costume.

Offering a muddle of philandering husbands, wives and girlfriends, truth, lies and riddles, the result is two hours of fast, furious fun.

Tickets for Who’s Who! are priced between £13 and £17.
