Go on, go on, go on and see Father Ted show

Take a trip to Craggy Island to see Whitley Bay Theatre Company’s new comedy show next week.

Following the trials and tribulations of Father Ted, the show is set on the remote and fictional Craggy Island off Ireland’s west coast.

Starring the iconic Father Ted Crilly, alongside fellow priests Father Dougal McGuire and Father Jack Hackett.

Exiled on the island for various past incidents, the priests live together in the parochial house with their housekeeper Mrs Doyle.

The show revolves around the priests’ lives on Craggy Island, sometimes dealing with matters of the church but more often dealing with Father Ted’s schemes to either resolve a situation with the parish or other Craggy Island residents, or to win games of one-upmanship against his arch-nemesis, Father Dick Byrne of the nearby Rugged Island parish.

The hilarious production that promises to have the audience rolling around with laughter will be at the Playhouse Whitley Bay from Wednesday, November 6, to Saturday, November 9, starting at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £10 until November 7, and £12 after, and are available by calling the box office on 0844 2481588, www.playhousewhitleybay.co.uk or call into the theatre in person.
