Minster Playhouse presented the farce, “Move over Mrs Markham” written by Ray Cooney and John Chapman and directed by MPH regular Steve Clement.

The play set in 1971, with colour scheme, hairstyles, costumes and lack of mobile phones, to match, has a single multi-roomed set and a cast of nine.

 

Move over Mrs Markham is a door slamming, trouser dropping farce which follows the antics of three sets of hopeful lovers when they all converge on the bedroom of the Markham’s supposedly empty London flat. (They’ve got the decorators in – see local entertainer Jeff Barker as a beautifully camp interior designer).

 

Things become more complicated when established author Olive Harriet Smythe arrives at the flat to offer her newest children’s book to the publishing firm of Lodge and Markham. Mistaken identities galore and a bouncy oval bed make this a classic, not to be missed farce in vintage style. Also answered is the age old question of can you get a bra through the slats of a louvre door ?
