10 August-7 January 2005. If you are a fan of British soap operas, this new farce by Ray and Michael Cooney is sure to tickle your fancy. Starring the McGann brothers Joe, Stephen and Mark in the title roles of brothers Tom, Dick and Harry and featuring several other TV stars from Eastenders and The Bill, the play centres on Tom and his wife as they attempt to adopt a baby but are inadvertently sabotaged by Toms brothers Dick and Harry in their enthusiasm to help the couple. The mayhem that ensues heralds a dead body, a Russian Mafioso, a reality TV show and topical London goings on involving illegal immigrants and a van load of contraband cigarettes from the continent. Toms gift for getting out of a tight scrape are tested to the full with the arrival of the Supervisor from the Adoption Agency and the Policeman. The fun starts in the first scene and doesnt stop throughout. Tickets cost 25.00 to 5.00 (until 10 September), then 37.50 to 7.00. Mon-Fri 20.00, Thu 15.00, Sat 17.00 and 20.15.
