Tom Dick and HarryTom, Dick and Harry, The Playhouse Whitstable

Thursday, 23rd until Saturday, 25th May 2019

Tom, Dick and Harry written by playwrights Ray Cooney and his son Michael, is Theatrecraft's Spring Play and our entry into the Kent Drama Association's Full Length Play Festival 2019. 

Tom and his wife, Linda, are hoping to adopt a baby so everything must be perfect for the visit later that day of the lady from the adoption agency.

Enter Tom’s brothers – Dick and Harry – who have come to ‘help’. Their hearts are in the right place but their brains definitely aren’t! Before long, the house is awash with contraband cigarettes, suspicious-looking packages, an inquisitive police officer, and two stowaway refugees. And the lady from the adoption agency is due at any moment!

For an evening full of fast-paced farce and mayhem come and join us at The Playhouse Whitstable.  We look forward to seeing you there.
