Be among the first to see the outrageous new comedy directed by Return of the Saint star Ian Ogilvy.

Acclaimed theatre company Talking Scarlet are bringing Swap! to Buxton following visits in 2015 and 2016 with Dial M for Murder and Sherlock Holmes & the Ripper Murders.

Swap! tells the story of Brian Flowers and his wife Susan when they arrive at their house-swapping summer vacation in Spain only to discover they’ve unknowingly traded houses with a British gangster. The mess gets bigger and the clean-up gets sillier as ex-girlfriends, twin brothers and dead bodies all start piling up – and Brian and Susan, together with Susan’s brother Jeremy, are forced to improvise at breath-taking speed.

In a near faultless piece of theatrical invention, with the inevitable hilarious consequences, Swap! is an outrageous farce that has to be seen to be believed!

The production stars famous faces including Kim Tiddy (The Bill, Hollyoaks), Freya Copeland (Emmerdale), and well known theatre actor David Callister.

Swap! is running at Buxton Opera House on May 9 and 10 at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £18 and discounts are available. Contact 01298 72190 or www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk
