After the final lifting of restrictions across England on Monday, the Whitby Amateur Dramatics Society are looking forward to their grand return to Whitby Pavilion Theatre.

After an 18 month limbo for theatre across the country, the local performers from Whitby Amateur Dramatics Society or WADS as they are more affection-ally know, are excited for their 12 performance run of Michael Cooney’s farce ‘Cash On Delivery’.

After the pandemic enforced closure of theatres across the country, it is hoped the family show, which runs on Tuesday and Thursday evenings until Tuesday 14 September will allow families and youngsters rediscover trips to their local theatre.

‘Cash On Delivery’ tells the hilarious farce of Eric Swan (aided by his Uncle George and unbeknown to his wife Linda) who has pocketed tens of thousands of pounds through fraudulent DSS claims. When Norman Bassett (the lodger) opens the door to Mr Jenkins (the DSS inspector), deceptive mayhem follows - as soon the undertaker, bereavement counsellor, psychiatrist, Norman’s fiancé, a corpse and the ominous Ms Cowper!

Director of the show, Ian Dobson is delighted to be returning to Whitby Pavilion Theatre once again: “This is probably the funniest play that WADS have ever done, it’s just the perfect show to cheers us up after such a tough 18 months.”

“The best part about it is that it is suitable for the whole family to enjoy, it just gets bigger and bigger and the laughs keep on coming. If you are a visitor or a resident of Whitby, you must catch Cash On Delivery this summer”!

Tickets for Cash On Delivery are onsale now and are available from the Whitby Pavilion Box Office by calling (01947) 824770 and via
