Betty Blue Eyes
The Times has described this smash-hit musical as:
“warm, witty, rude, loveable, dramatic and hilarious”
and the Guardian said:
“This is a rare show… a genuine musical comedy”
This musical has received much praise and much press as it is the producer, Cameron Mackintosh’s “first gleaming new musical in over 10 years”.
Betty Blue Eyes - Synopsis
Betty Blue Eyes started life as a hilariously funny but sharply observed comic film called “A Private Function” written by Alan Bennett and Malcolm Mowbray twenty six years ago. It takes place in Austerity Britain in 1947, just after the war and centres around a pig called Betty.
Britain is suffering from acute rationing, unemployment and one of the coldest winters in decades. While the country’s long suffering citizens are forced to survive on low rations, the local officials are taking more than their fair share. The only event that everyone has to look forward to is the marriage of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Phillip.
Betty is an adorable pig who is illegally reared so that the local dignitaries can celebrate the Royal Wedding in style with a lavish banquet while everyone else will have Spam. The pig is stolen by Gilbert Chilvers, an evangelist chiropodist, and Joyce, his wife.
The Cast of Betty Blue Eyes
Betty Blue Eyes was written by Alan Bennett and Malcolm Mowbray as the comic film The Private Function, it was then adapted and expanded for the stage by Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman. George Stiles and Anthony Drewe have written an infectious and retro contemporary score to match the mood of this production.
The cast is headed by Sarah Lancashire and Reece Shearsmith with a marvellous British supporting cast.
Have a fun day out and enjoy this hilarious musical production!
