Bedroom Farce at Oldham Coliseum

Oldham Coliseum’s autumn and winter 2013-14 season is the first full season back in their Fairbottom Street home since a big refurbishment.

Hot jazz classic Chicago headlines their events, in a brand-new production.

Sue McCormick of the venue’s recent Ladies’ Day production returns with a new Northern-spirited comedy No Fat Juliets, a world première.

Following that, the Alan Ayckbourn classic Bedroom Farce is another of the Coliseum’s attractions.

A season ticket deal includes all three shows plus a choice of either Harold Pinter’s Betrayal or the award­-winning The Holly and the Ivy—both visiting productions.

Plus the venue’s always popular pantomime, which this year is Jack and The Beanstalk.

Other visiting performances include The Nutcracker presented by The Russian Classical Ballet, The Reduced Shakespeare Company, Motown’s Greatest Hits – How Sweet It Is, Toby Hadoke’s Dr Who, My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver and The Marriage Of Figaro.
