Is Your Honeymoon Really Necessary? by E.V. Tidmarsh
Thursday 12th to Saturday 14th November 1970
St Augustine’s Hall, Trowbridge
There is a widespread belief amongst amateur acting groups that the playing of dramatic roles requires ability but that ‘anybody can play comedy or farce’. Whilst the reverse of this statement is not wholly valid, it comes considerable nearer the truth than the idea just stated. “Is Your Honeymoon Really Necessary?” – one of the bedroomiest of all farces – opened in the West End of London in the mid-1940’s and ran most successfully for over three years. Although now rarely performed, “Is Your Honeymoon Really Necessary?” is a very well constructed and witty play. It is, of it’s kind, a classic.
