THERE was plenty of drama and theatrics on stage ­— and the audiences loved it.

Trinity Players Farnworth presented the British comedy Love's a Luxury in May 1980.

Set in an idyllic cottage in the English countryside, a theatre producer and an actor try and have a quite week in country cottage.

But cue an arrival of a variety of wives, girlfriends and scoutmasters.

The play starred Colin Higson, Fred Reeve, Jean Wood, Jim Webster and Norman Critchley.

The 1952 film was directed by Francis Searle and made by Manchester-based Mancunian films.

It starred Hugh Wakefield, Derek Bond and Michael Medwin.
