Larne Drama Circle’s spring production “Don’t Tell the Wife” is a comedy by Northern Ireland playwright, Sam Cree.

The play tells the story of Edna Willis who thinks she is happily married to Bobby – well, as happily married as you can be to a man who eats onions with everything.

Plumber Bobby Willis (Jay Alexander) and his apprentice Cyril (Simon Hunter) are taking part in "Don't Tell the Wife". INLT 06-651-CON

But Bobby is about to turn 50 – a dangerous age for a man – and he’s hankering after something young that can stick the pace.

When he starts taking vitamin pills, well now, that proves he’s chasing after other women or does it?

Many misunderstandings follow and the cast of colourful characters combined with twisted plots make for a great night’s entertainment for all the family.

Larne Drama Circle is delighted to bring this Sam Cree comedy to the stage. Written in 1967, the play will entertain you with the sights and sounds of the Sixties as well as lots of laughs.
