BROADWAY Theatre and Cutting The Strings present a new comedy play based on Les Dawson's comic TV characters Cissie and Ada.
Cissie and Ada, fully Cissie Braithwaite and either Ada Shufflebotham or Sidebottom are two Northern housewives created and played by Les Dawson and comic actor Roy Barraclough on television in the 1970s and 1980s.
With a love of gossip, stoical pursing of lips and constantly heaved bosoms; the perfectly realised characters became an unforgettable hit with the British public and are regarded as Dawson's most notable creation.
Now audiences can relive their funniest moments in a hilarious new play Cissie and Ada An Hysterical Rectomy gracing the theatre stage for the first time.
Written by playwright Graham Warrener in collaboration with original Cissie and Ada scriptwriter Terry Ravenscroft, Cissie and Ada revisits the story and the culture behind the side-splitting sketches and that of BBC Light Entertainment in the 80's.
Two former Coronation Street favourites Eric Potts (Diggory) and Steven Arnold (Ashley) join Steve Nallon (famous for his Mrs Thatcher impersonation live and on seminal satirical TV show Spitting Image) and actress Natasha Magigi to bring Dawson and Barraclough's comedy genius back to life.
Cissie & Ada will be at the Playhouse, Weston-super-Mare, on Thursday 19 September, at 7.30pm. Tickets, priced at £16, £14 Concessions, are available on 01934 645 544 or online at http://tinyurl.com/qcsuzlp target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://tinyurl.com/677l7bh" target="_blank">http://tinyurl.com/677l7bh
