Caught in the Net a Markfield & Thornton Theatre Group Production

  • Every day
  • Location: Thornton village
  • Time: 19:30 - 10:00
  • Cost: £5 per ticket

This May we are going to bring you laughs a plenty with a Ray Cooney play ‘Caught in the Net’, a sequel to last year's well received performance of ‘Run for your Wife’.

We bring back the hapless John Smith, the taxi driver with two wives and two lives. His secret is still safe, but 18 years on it brings a whole new set of farcical situations which could easily send his double life into turmoil.

John now has a son with one wife and a daughter with the other and the two make contact on a chat room and plan to meet. Add to the mix the not so bright lodger along with his ageing and ever confused father and things are bound to get interesting. With clever and quick witted dialogue and fabulous characters we hope to once again have the audience laughing out loud.

Performances run from Wednesday 8 to Saturday 11 May starting at 7.30pm. 

Ticket price is £5 (no concessions) and can be obtained by:

  • Telephone: call Anne, in the bookings office, on 01530 469714
  • Facebook: message MTTG Facebook page
  • Collect in person:
    • Purchase from Thornton’s Stepin Convenience Store: at the corner of Church Lane, Thornton
    • Purchase from a group member

We do hope that you can join us at Thornton Community Centre, 175 Main St, Thornton LE67 1AH for an evening of good old fashioned good humour.
