A new play offers plenty of laughs as a theatre company bring Caught in the Net to the stage.

The play by Ray Cooney is being performed by Apeel Drama Group.

The brilliant farce follows John Smith who has two wives and one child to each wife. Those children meet online and find out about their dads having a lot in common and plan to meet and discuss this.

That is until John finds out and pulls out all the stops to try and ruin any chance of the truth coming out, with the help, and at the expense of his best friend Stanley.

John is played by Neil Ogden, who has transitioned from behind the scenes work to take on the lead role and is supported by Apeel veterans Helen Davies and Lisa Barlow as his wives Barbara and Mary.

John's children Vicki and Gavin are played by youth performers Honey Timperley and Mason Spencer who both started their Apeel Journey as part of the original Apeel Youth Group.

Stanley Gardner is played by Ben Latham who takes on his first role for Apeel and is hilarious in the role, and rounding off the cast is 'Dad' a senile but lovable old bat played by Apeel regular Harvey Millard.

A spokesperson for the theatre company said: "This show never misses a beat. The action starts very quickly and only continues to build until the crescendo ending that reveals a lot more than anyone cares to know! Geoff [Millard] has taken on the role of director and is working hard with the cast to ensure this show is not one to miss."

Caught In The Net opens on Thursday, April 25 and runs until Saturday, April 27. Tickets can be purchased for just £10 at Ticketsource.co.uk/apeeldramagroup

The play will perform at St Paul Peel, Parish Community Hall on Manchester Road West, Little Hulton.
