Some Mothers Go 'Av 'Em at the Barn Theatre

The Barn Theatre presents

Some Mothers Do 'Av 'Em

From 8 July - 17 August 2024

Artistic Director Iwan Lewis, and the whole team at the Barn Theatre, are pleased to announce full casting for the stage adaptation of the much-loved classic TV show Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em, running at the Cirencester venue rom 08 July – 17 August, with a national press night on Thursday 11 July.
 
Directed by Joseph O’Malley and adapted from Ray Allen’s classic 1970s hit show by Guy Unsworth, Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em will star Julie Teal (Confusions, Hayfever, Dial M For Murder, The King and I) as ‘Barbara Fisher’, Sam Denia (Chekhov’s Sketches and Vaudevilles, Comedy of Errors, Murder For Two, Around The World In 80 Days) as ‘Frank Spencer’, Laura Anna-Mead (Much Ado About Nothing, Damsels in Distress, Shakespeare in Love, Vanilla) as ‘Betty Spencer’, Derek Elroy (One Man Two Guvnors, Grenfell: Systems Failure, Grimm Tales, Calendar Girls The Musical) as ‘Father O’Hara’, Steven Wren (People, On Golden Pond, Othello, Little Shop of Horrors) as ‘David Worthington/Terry Luscombe’, Georgia Leila Stoller (The Three Lives of Lucie Cabrol, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Panto, Carrie the Musical, Treasure Island) as ‘Leslie/Constable’.
 
The loveable accident-prone Frank Spencer fails to navigate even the easiest tasks of daily life, while also trying to look after his wife and baby, with hilarious consequences. A simple, likeable character who unwittingly and apologetically left a trail of devastation in his wake, Spencer’s ineptitude and determination to try everything led to many unforgettable moments of laugh out loud comedy.
 
Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em is the ultimate feel-good night out, washed down with lashings of nostalgia, belly laughs and Mother’s prune wine. It was first broadcast in 1973 and ran for two series, including two Christmas specials in 1974 and 1975.
 
During the 1970s, the show dominated television screens and became regarded as one of the most popular hit series of all time. It regularly garnered 25 million viewers and was broadcast in 60 countries. Frank Spencer, with his trademark beret and trench coat still remains one of the most beloved and most instantly recognisable comedy characters of all time.
 
Artistic Director Iwan Lewis said, “We’re absolutely thrilled to bring ‘Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em’ to the Barn Theatre! This was one of my Grandmother’s favourite TV shows so as Frank Spencer would say, “I’ll try not to make a hash of it, Betty.” -We can’t wait to share Frank’s iconic comedic chaos with you on the Barn Theatre stage. Expect a whirlwind of laughs—Betty herself would be proud. It’s going to be smashing!”
 
Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em will be directed by Joseph O’Malley, with design by Alfie Heywood lighting design by Adam Foley, composition and sound design by Sam Glossop, with Mike Beer as sound programmer. Annie Mackenzie is stunt coordinator.
