The Twits, Century Theatre, Coalville, Sat 10 Nov
Roald Dahl created some truly revolting characters in his time but surely few can compare with Mr and Mrs Twit. This adaptation by David Wood is a marvellous mix of singing, music, slapstick, audience participation, shouting and beards. Five Star Theatre and the Century Theatre are bringing the truly ghastly, infamous book characters to life in this fun and interactive production.

NT Recorded Live – Allelujah!, by Alan Bennett, Sat 10 Nov
Alan Bennett’s sharp and hilarious new play is just what the doctor ordered. Filmed live at London’s Bridge Theatre during its limited run, don’t miss this rousing chorus line for the NHS. The story goes something like this; The Beth, an old fashioned cradle-to-grave hospital serving a town on the edge of the Pennines, is threatened with closure as part of an efficiency drive. A documentary crew, eager to capture its fight for survival, follows the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springield Geriatric Ward, and the triumphs of the old people’s choir. Start time 7.00 pm (2hr.50 min.) Tickets on sale from Quinns Bookshop, Three Crowns Yard, Market Harborough.
