The Perfect Wife Roadshow - Previews Open


plested-and-brown-comedy-theatre-the-perfect-wife-roadshow-newsletter-poster.jpgWe're all getting a tad hectic here at 'Plested and Brown' as we make the final preparations for the opening preview of our brand new production. After months of hard work writing , development and rehearsal we are at that crucial point where 'ready or not' the theatre is booked, the tickets are sold and our audience are champing at the bit to see our latest offering...

So here goes, time to jump off the proverbial cliff and hope that some rapturous applause at the end will soften the landing!

18th June    Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford

24th June    The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury

Plested and Brown get Perfect Pitch


We are pleased to announce that Perfect Pitch Musicals will we coming onboard with 'The Perfect Wife Roadshow'. They came to our first mucking around and got really excited about the project. 

On Monday (3rd May), P and B will be workshopping the 'The Perfect wife Roadshow' with support from Perfect Pitch. We will be working with 3 west end singers, a dramaturg, a musical director and two actors who will stand in for Clare and Adam.... we hope they're not too funny!

This is very exciting for all of us at P&B - it gives the team a chance to sit back and see the piece afresh. Sometimes you're evolved so much you can't see the wood for the trees!

We are all very excited and hope it will short cut some of the devising process.


New Show Gets Funding


Plested and Browns are pleased to announce that their brand new production  "The Perfect Wife Roadshow" will be co-commissioned by Newbury Corn Exchange, Barnsley Civic and Lincolnshire One Venues.
