Looks like Just Some Theatre Company's comedy capers with The Doppel Gang national tour offer serious sponsorship benefits
A new comedy play inspired by the legendary Marx Brothers embarks on a nationwide tour this autumn.
Just Some Theatre Company are producing The Doppel Gang, a new comedy by Dominic Hedges, which will tour twelve venues between September and November.
"We are planning a much larger tour next year, taking in UK arts festivals, twenty-plus nationwide venues and at least three weeks in an established London theatre venue. We are offering sponsors the opportunity to get involved and help us create the first tour of the show, before we take it much further in the future.
"We also welcome sponsorship after the current tour, to make the show even better in 2016. Sponsors will be rewarded with prominent advertisements and thanks in our programme, tickets to the venue of their choice, opportunities to meet the cast, and a sponsor pack including signed posters, photos of the cast and programmes.
More about the play ...
The Doppel Gang combines the wild wit of iconic comedy giants The Marx Brothers - Groucho, Harpo and Chico - with generous helpings of British humour and humility
war wages in Europe, while back in Blighty a group of entertainers battle to save a theatre from closure by masquerading as The Marx Brothers
as the Blitz tears through London, a hopeless theatre manager, Lombard, persuades a desperate double act, Tommy and Cyril, and not-so-convincing male impersonator Rachel, to join him in an audacious stunt - one last roll of the dice to save his building and boost morale
the curtain is about to rise, but so are the stakes as an unprecedented series of revelations leads to an exhilarating chain of events.
Will anyone believe they are the real Marx Brothers?
Playwright Dominic Hedges commented: "There are so many similarities between our comedy and that of our American cousins. We both think we're hilarious and we both think we're smarter than one another. Groucho Marx's lightning wit vs Eric Morecambe's wry asides for instance. I guess I've tried to pit us up against them, all the while hiding ourselves from the horrible reality of our Second World War surroundings. It's as though the faster we talk, the less life is real".
And here's what the critics had to say about Just Some Theatre Company's tour of Coward, a speculative fiction about the playwright and wit Noel Coward, by James Martin Charlton.
'They clearly love every moment of their performance and it is a delight to watch', West End Wilma ****.
'The three men have a fantastic chemistry on stage and seamlessly they work together to create a big story in a small room', Bargain Theatreland.
'A gripping production with numerous layers to feed your mind and imagination for days', Everything Theatre ****.
Coward was very well received by audiences and critics alike. Find out more about Just Some Theatre Company by visiting our website or social media pages".
