AliCat Theatre Presents Porridge


The AliCat Theatre will be performing an adaptation of Nick Lawe’s Porridge this weekend.

When a crime wave hits Happy Valley, there’s a caseload of mysteries to be solved.

What dirty secret is Papa Bear hiding behind his Porridge empire?

Join Jack, Goldie-Locks and a cast of crazy characters including some barmy billy goats, loopy lumberjacks, a runaway cow and a potty police squad for this brand new, side-splitting musical comedy.

The show will be performed at Backwell Playhouse at 2.30pm and 7pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Tickets are £7 for adults and £5 for children and can be bought on 01275 791275.
