Alan Ayckbourn's brand new comedy comes to Cheltenham

Neighbourhood Watch: Feb 20-25


Alan Ayckbourns brand new comedy comes to Cheltenham

the police are hanging on by a whisker... by that much... Its not here, mark you. Its nationwide. One breath of wind anarchy!

Directed by Ayckbourn himself, this is a UK premiere, following a highly acclaimed sell-out run in New York.

Things are not right on The Buebell Hill Development. Theft, petty crime, vandalism, all the ills of modern suburban existence are on the increase.

Newcomers Martin and his sister Hilda are the crime waves latest victims and resolve to take action. After all, the law of the land, all thats right and proper and even God Himself are surely on their side. But what starts out as a well intentioned neighbourhood watch scheme soon develops into something altogether more sinister.

Alan Ayckbourns hilarious cautionary tale of the dangers of taking the law into your own hands, is his 75th play.

The all-star cast include Eileen Batty, Terence Booth, Phil Cheadle, Matthew Cottle, Richard Derrington, Frances Grey, Amy Loughton and Alexandra Mathie.
