The Wayland Players head for Spain and ‘Heatstroke’

January is over, Christmas is a mere memory and thoughts turn to the delights of holiday brochures.  Let the Wayland Players put you in the mood with their madcap farce set in sunny Spain.

Sam and Fay Spencer arrive for a peaceful holiday in a luxurious Spanish villa expecting a relaxing holiday.  However, they are closely followed by actor Howard and his girlfriend, who have been double booked in the same villa.  Unfortunately, Sam and Howard have matching holdalls which were mixed up at the airport.   The discovery of a third, identical holdall, full of money, leads to a series of mishaps and assumed identities all at a breakneck pace in this hilarious farce by Eric Chappell.

‘Heatstroke’ will be on stage at the Queens Hall, Watton from Thursday 21st April to Saturday 23rd April 2016.  Tickets, priced £7.00, will be on sale at Adcocks in Watton High Street from Monday 21st March.
