“A hugely likable underdog tale, packing plenty of crowd-pleasing comedy wallop, and boasting a smack-down turn from the indomitable Florence Pugh.” The Guardian

‘Mullen’s own mix of funkily hard – struck notes and soft-toned fluency is always hypnotic.’ Guardian

Theatre- A Sidecar Named Despair @ The Corn Hall
Sep 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

A SIDECAR NAMED DESPAIR

Production Company: Common Ground Theatre Company
Venue: The Corn Hall

by Pat Whymark

Estranged brothers Dick & Julian never did really get on. Since the death of their father, they’ve been forced together, living in their old family home while they try and rebuild their lives and their dad’s rusty old motorbike and sidecar.

Having been working in the States as an accountant, Julian has returned suddenly, and won’t talk about his time there. He starts getting threatening messages, and it becomes clear that his business “associates” are not to be trifled with, and that his past is catching up with him, putting both their lives in jeopardy. It’s “The Odd Couple” versus the Mob!

A black comedy with original music by Pat Whymark, featuring Julian Harries and Richard Mainwaring reprising the characters they created for Common Ground’s 2013 comedy, Stuff In The Attic.

Reviews for Stuff in the Attic

“Pat Whymark’s latest play is very funny indeed” East Anglian Daily Times

“Good music and plenty of well-judged comic touches” In Suffolk

“Moments of pure farce alternate with real conflict” What’s on Stage)

Common Ground have been bringing their distinctive brand of  music theatre – with strong narrative, strong emotion and just a touch of the surreal – to venues across East Anglia, since 2008.
