The Stevenage Lytton Players Autumn 2012 Drama Production was Stags and Hens performed at the Lytton Theatre.

What's It About
Like much of Willy Russell's work, (he of Blood Brothers fame), the play discusses working class society in England in the 1970s. It makes comments about their intellect, life, party habits and exclusion of the different.

The play is set in a trashy club in Liverpool, “Branskys”. The action is mainly in the gents and ladies toilets of the club where both Linda (the Bride) and Dave (the Groom) have decided to hold their stag and hen nights, not knowing that their other half is at the same place.

Whilst entering the club, Dave, in a drunken stupor, becomes ill from the Indian curry he ate (washed down with a copious mix of cider and Guinness) and spends the remainder of the evening (and the play) in the Gents, with his head down the lavatory bowl!

Linda, discontent with life, bumps into her ex-boyfriend, Pete. He’s now a musician with a single climbing the charts, but who is back in Liverpool on this particular night - playing a gig at Branskys.

Dave’s mates, including Kav, and gang leader Eddie and Linda’s friends including married Bernadette, decide to take the law into their own hands when they suspect that Linda, on seeing Pete again, is having second thoughts about marrying Dave.
