When We Were Married - The Bear Pit, Stratford

Stratford Editorial 9th Jun, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

JB Priestly’s farce When We Were Married can be seen at The Bear Pit in Stratford until Saturday June 21.

Three well-to-do West Yorkshire couples who were married on the same day, at the same church and by the same vicar.

But disaster strikes when they join to celebrate 25 years of married bliss and discover that the vicar who married them wasn’t actually licensed and consequently they’re not as respectable as they thought they were.

Lucy Morris who plays Phoebe in The Archers on BBC Radio 4, takes on a major role and will be rubbing shoulders with a full cast of well-known faces from the theatre at the United Reformed Church in Rother Street..

Lucy has taken time out of her busyrecording schedule and is also fresh from playing ‘Candy’ in ‘Whistle Down the Wind’ with Stratford’s Young Rogues and Vagabonds Musical Theatre last month.

She said: “I’ve always been a great fan of The Bear Pit and I’m really looking forward to working with such a talented director and group of actors.”

Other members of the cast include Bear Pit associate artists Niki Baldwin, Philip Hickson, Juliet Grundy, Paul Tomlinson, Viv Tomlinson, David Derrington, Pamela Hickson, Lily Lyppard, Dominic Skinner, Kevin Hand, Adrian McCarthy, Anne Bowen and David Southeard.

The production is directed by Vanessa Comer.

Ticket, priced from £8 (concessions available for over 60s and under 18s), are available by calling 01789 403416
