OFF THE HOOK! By Derek Benfield
Scene 1: An afternoon in Spring
Scene 2: The same evening
Scene 1: A few seconds later
Scene 2: The early hours of the next morning
The action takes place in the lounge bar of Hook House,
a quiet English hotel somewhere in the country.
Time: The Present
Three dubious characters book into an equally dubious hotel run by a very dubious staff…. Dubious, you might think, and you would not be wrong!!
This is an extremely funny play with the most colourful set of characters you are ever likely to come across. Not since the highly comical "Faulty Towers" came to our attention has such a turn of events unravelled itself before you.
Stolen money, escaped prisoners, nymphomaniacs, chases, bodies, love and hate all abound in this whirlwind of a production…..and that doesn't even include the pigs!!
Come and join us for a night to remember!
