Early Doors

EARLY DOORS, Britain’s best loved pub sitcom is to return in summer 2018…live. Adapting their award winning television series for the stage, Craig Cash and Phil Mealey have written a brand new story featuring the same hilarious characters.
The Grapes Pub will reopen its doors for a limited season in a not-to-be-missed night of fun and laughter.
Ken’s got love on his mind, but will barmaid, Tanya, ring the landlord’s bell? Old Tommy would play Cupid – if only he didn’t have IBS (Irritable Bugger’s Syndrome). Crime is on the rise but fear not, as local cops Phil and Nige are getting stuck in… to a couple of pints in the back room. After all, “Crime can’t crack itself.” All of this and much, much more when Early Doors returns.
Craig Cash and Phil Mealey said: “Writing Early Doors again has been a joy and we’re really excited by the results. Putting it on stage for the first time ever will be a huge thrill. One that we hope you will come along and share.”
