Make Way for Lucia

A comedy with a period setting is being staged in Northampton next week.

Based on E. F. Benson’s novels written in the 1920s and 30s, Make Way for Lucia comes to The Playhouse Theatre in Northampton from Tuesday September 12 to Saturday September 16. It tells of the war for social supremacy between Lucia and Miss Mapp in Tilling.

This stage adaption features all the wit, irony and humour of the originals.

Tickets for the show cost £9 for adults and £8 for concessions.

It will start at 7.45pm each evening.
