THE COW FIELDS OF SLACK BOTTOM
The Smidgintons and Smacklethwaites have farmed the Scuddleswick valley in peace and prosperity for centuries. But when young Fred makes a request of his neighbour, he unleashes a terrible chain of events with somewhat hilarious consequences. A tale of passion, dead men’s boots, mushy peas, slack bottoms and horse whips; find out what happens when Stockdill gives Chekhov a right good going over.
TROUBLE AT UPPER THONG
Love is in the air, but its path doesn’t run smoothly in this new Yorkshire comedy. A story of betrothals, promises breached, boils lanced and a fool fettled. Throw in a widow woman plus a love-sick doctor and it’s a recipe for mayhem and merriment. The Smidgintons and the Smacklethwaites of The Cow Fields of Slack Bottom are joined by the Blenkinsops and the Thackers in a tale that will tickle your tonsils.
