From the Lancashire Evening Post

The best description of this play is ‘a bawdy romp’.

Just two acts of 45 minutes each (a game of two halves!) set against the background of the 1990 World Cup semi-final between England and Germany, which five people, well supplied with beer, are watching on TV in a Spanish holiday hotel.

In this CADOs production, Bill is married to Monica but she is fed up as all he thinks about is football. She tells him she is leaving him for Gary Lineker.

Bill’s frightful friend, geeky Ian, is with them, along with his German colleague, Birgitta, who he hopes to seduce - less likely than England winning the World Cup. Ian is not interested in football but Birgitta, of course, wants Germany to win.

Ian once worked for Bill’s publishing company but is plotting to steal one of his authors, Dan, who then unexpectedly joins them.

Dan is another football fanatic but, it transpires, has been playing games with Monica for some time - and it looks like he will also score with Birgitta. But, as events on the pitch unfold, so do secrets between the five.

Alan Levesley and Steven Catterall, as Bill and Dan, were totally convicing as your typical scarf-waving, bawling ‘lads’ whilst Paul Carr’s portrayal of underhanded nerd Ian was so realistic you wanted to thump him.

Sarah Rosental was perfect as the philosophical Monica, who also held the play together as narrator, whilst Sophie Watson made a suitably seductive Bergitta with a nice line in humour at the idiosyncracies of the English language.

Light-hearted entertainment with a clever ending. Just the thing to take your mind off England’s progress in the European Cup.

An Evening with Gary Lineker runs until Saturday. See here.

CADOS

Guys & Dolls, originally scheduled for 15th-23rd June has been cancelled for technical reasons. We apologise for any inconvenience - if you bought tickets, please return to Malcolm's Musicland for a refund.

In it's place we're doing the play An Evening With Gary Lineker. It's not quite the same thing, but is a very funny play for people who do or don't like football.

The 2012-2013 CADOS Season will be announced soon - we've delayed it to make sure nothing falls through again like it has recently - but dates are on this website now. We hope to announce the full season at the end of June but please note the opening play, Calendar Girls, is on sale and is already filling up fast.

Attention all Russell Kane ticket holders - here's a message from the man himself:

Hello Everyone who bought a ticket to my show.

I am really sorry to be re-scheduling this date. I made a pilot for BBC3 before Christmas "Live at The Electric" and it's been commissioned for 8 episodes. Woo hoo! However I have to film them all before April!!! which means a bit of juggling.

So sorry to let you guys down, but come to the rescheduled date and I promise to spurt it out twice as forcefully.

Love Russell (Kane that is:  there are a few of us now.)

This means the show scheduled for Wednesday 21st March has had to be rescheduled for Sunday 20th May. We're sorry for the inconvenience and hope you can still come. All tickets for the March show will be valid on 20th May. We are no longer accepting returns for the original date.
