Chase Me Comrade was performed at The Palace Theatre, Redditch 19-22 October 2011.
A farce by Ray Cooney at the Palace Theatre, Redditch
“The year is 1964. A Russian male ballet dancer has defected to the west and is being hidden by friends. Complications set in at once. The house where he is concealed belongs to a naval commander whose duty it would be to hand him over to the authorities. So the commander’s daughter, Nancy and her fiancé get involved in a hilarious game of hide and seek in which everybody is pretending to be everybody else.
This play is a riot from beginning to end and was a huge West End hit at the famous Whitehall Theatre. It was a great success when Rowney Green Players performed it, with a few cheeky updates, a couple of years ago and they have resurrected it by popular demand.
Come and feast on a riot of fun, you won’t be disappointed!”
