Dewsbury Art Group returns to the stage for its new season

Dewsbury Arts Group has re-opened and it is pleased to present its first play of the season, Dry Rot, by John Chapman.

Saturday, 25th September 2021, 5:00 pm
Dewsbury Art Group presents Dry Rot from October 2-9

This is one of the great Whitehall farces that was made into a film in 1956. A crooked bookie and his two accomplices devise a cunning plan to “get rich quick”.

In order to be near the racecourse, they stay in a country hotel run by an eccentric retired Colonel, his wife and daughter.

Other crazy characters, secret rooms, sliding panels and a bit of a romance are some of the main ingredients of this racy and slick farce.
