The Barn Theatre in Cirencester has announced a packed summer schedule including a new revival production of Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em.

Based on the 1970s classic TV hit by Ray Allen and written by the award-winning Guy Unsworth, the comedy revival will run at the venue from 8 July – 17 August. 

The series was first broadcast in 1973 and ran for two series, including Christmas specials in 1974 and 1975.

During the 1970s the show dominated television screens and became regarded as one of the most popular hit series of all time. It regularly garnered 25 million viewers and was broadcast in 60 countries.

Also part of the Barn Theatre’s current season are new revival productions of Nick Payne’s high concept romance Constellations and David Greig and Gordon McIntyre’s play with songs Midsummer, co-produced with Mercury Theatre.

Faye Brookes (Coronation Street and Strictly Ballroom) and Tom Lorcan (Coronation Street, A Monster Calls) will star in the theatre’s upcoming revival production of Nick Payne’s multi-award-winning play Constellations.

This play will see the return of Jessica Daniels (The Butterfly Lion, The Mozart Question) who will direct the production, running at the Cotswold venue from 29 March – 18 May, with a press performance on 2 April.

Tickets for the production are now on sale to priority members with general sale on 25 March.
