Wendi Peters, Diana Vickers, Vicky Binns and more to star in world premiere of HATCHED 'N' DISPATCHED at Park Theatre

World premiere of 
Hatched ‘n’ Dispatched 
- a mucky romp through the morals, memories and music of the 1950s!

An all-star cast is announced today for the world premiere of Hatched ‘n’ Dispatched, a black comedy set in the industrial north of England by Gemma Page and Michael Kirk.

Hatched ‘n’ Dispatched will open at Park Theatre in a 4-week season from Tuesday 1 September -  Saturday 26 September. 

Press night is Wednesday 2 September at 7.00pm.

It is 1959 and you are invited to a party. The Needham family have buried Uncle Arthur and christened Baby Clifford in a double booking at the church. As Dorothy-Mavis 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.
