Guilty Pleasures for Darlington this summer!

WhatsOnStage logo
Guilty Pleasures, a raunchy and risqué comedy set in a steamy ‘ladies-only’ health spa will be at Darlington Civic Theatre between 20 and 23 June.

Written by Ron Aldridge, directed by Stephen Leatherland, Guilty Pleasures is the next laugh-out-loud farce from the producers of the smash-hit comedy The Naked Truth.

The play follows the comedic misadventures of GC, the bold and brazen spa owner, and his staff of fantasy men with their sizzling spa specials! Fun ensues as they try to fulfil the special requests of their demanding female clients. But, when things start to get out of control, will they escape unscathed? And, when one of the men reveals he has testicular cancer, a more dramatic and serious side to the piece emerges. As all their various stories unfold and unravel, audiences will share their laughter and tears in this hilarious production tinged with a bittersweet edge.

The cast is headed by a trio of Craig Chalmers (Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat & a runner-up from the BBC's Any Dream Will Do), Marc Bannerman (Gianni di Marco in EastEnders & former I’m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! contestant) and CJ de Mooi (Eggheads).

A percentage of the profits from the production shall go to raising awareness and money for Everyman, the UK’s leading prostate and testicular cancer charity.
