Preview: Frank Sumatra On Tour
On Tour Across The North East
Imagine Paddington Bear gone wrong. And not a bear. Bev and Keith are a nice young couple who do their bit for the environment and pay 10 quid a month to the World Wildlife Fund to sponsor an orphaned orangutan. They’re also trying very hard to have a baby but when their orangutan turns up on the doorstep they find themselves parents to a hairy, unruly teenager.
A dark and surreal comedy written by Mike Yeaman (Lucky Numbers, Canoeing for Beginners) performed live in the style of a radio drama.
Frank Sumatra is a new One Act play, commissioned by Queens Hall Hexham.
Cast: Jessica Johnson, Mat Hobbins, Pip Chamberlin.
Directed by Bev Fox.
