Chorleywood favourite Wendi Peters is starring in Hatched ‘n’ Dispatched, a new play just opened at The Park Theatre, North London. The drama, written by Gemma Page & Michael Kirk, is billed as ‘a mucky romp through the morals, memories and music of the 1950s’. The plot revolves around the Needham family who have buried Uncle Arthur and christened Baby Clifford in a double booking at the local church.
As Dorothy-Mavis (Wendi) takes charge of preparations for the after-party, tensions erupt and toxic secrets threaten to destroy her family. But she is not a woman to let family love come between her and social respectability – whatever the cost.
Set in the industrial north of England, this black comedy takes place over one evening in early Autumn, 1959.
The play also features X Factor semi-finalist Diana Vickers as well as Vicky Binns, Matthew Fraser Holland, Wendy Morgan, Danielle Flett, Kevin McGowan and James Wrighton.
Wendi Peters is much loved for her role of Cilla Battersby Brown in Coronation Street and was recently on stage in Oh What a Lovely War at the Theatre Royal, Stratford East & UK Tour which included included a performance at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.
Until 26 September, £15/£18
