A STAR-studded line-up will take to the Cheltenham stage next week to perform an hilarious and classic award-winning comedy.

The hugely anticipated revival of Mike Stott's comedy Funny Peculiar comes to the town's Everyman Theatre with a line-up including former soap stars from such popular shows as Coronation Street and Emmerdale.

TV favourites Craig Gazey, who played Weatherfield's hilariously innocent butcher Graeme Proctor, and former Emmerdale actress Suzanne Shaw are just two of the names performing at the Regent Street venue between Tuesday, May 8 and Saturday, May 12.

Also performing are former Hollyoaks beauty and two-times British Soap Awards winner Gemma Bissix, Vicky Entwistle who played the feisty Janice Battersby in Coronation Street and Heartbeat's Steven Blakely.

The show is playing to packed houses all over the UK with audiences lucky enough to bag tickets seeing a lot more than they may have bargained for.

The comedy tells the story of small-town grocer Trevor Tinsley who has a devoted wife and new baby. But his desire to taste the forbidden fruit of free love leads him astray and into the welcoming arms of his neighbour's wife.

Raunchy misadventures ensue revealing a host of comic characters as Trevor's actions lead him into conflict with the community and provokes his narrow-minded wife into a surprising reaction of her own.

Prolific stage, television and radio writer Mike Stott is renowned for celebrating the quirkiness and robust charm of ordinary life and this show does not disappoint.

Tickets cost between £10 and £25 plus a booking fee and are available by calling the the Everyman Theatre Box Office on 01242 572573 or visiting their website at www.everymantheatre.org.uk.

The show, starting at 7.45pm, is not suitable as the production contains strong language, nudity and adult humour.
