About this show

Britain in the 1970s: a time of strikes, blackouts, and free love. But Philip's frustrated. While his wife Angela thinks he's past it, he wants to share a whole lotta love with Catherine from next door. When the naughty neighbours check in at the Paradise Hotel, it's a night to remember - for all the wrong reasons. The lights go out, the corridors see more action than the beds, and to cap it all, the place could be haunted... Throw in Fanny the French maid, Detective Inspector Connors of the Vice Squad, a snake called Cecil and Tom the mynah bird, and it all makes for a chaotic cocktail of confusion leaving the would-be lovebirds not even halfway to Paradise.

A tale of midlife crises, mistaken identities and misfiring sexual shenanigans, this new farce from Liverpool writer Stephen Sharkey (The May Queen) is a delirious delight. Age recommendation: 14+
