‘WHEN THE CAT’S AWAY’

Herongate Barn Theatre, Pickering, March 4, 2012

After the successful run of ‘Sex Please, We’re 60’ we return to Herongate to enjoy ‘When the Cat’s Away’. Based on a very popular British sit com, this riotously funny play is classic British sex farce.

When Mildred and Ethel go off on a trip to Paris, the “mice will play”. Egged on by Ethel’s philandering husband Humphrey Pomfrey, George agrees to invite two charming little sex kittens over.

Well, you already know what happens next, don’t you – the wives come home prematurely…YIKES!

The century old Herongate Barn Theatre began as a dairy farm. It is now a truly unique dinner theatre experience. Where else can you dine in a bull pen or manger, and sit on a theatre seat that originally came from the historic old Victory Burlesque Theatre in Toronto?
