Hangover horrors feature in theatre's new farce

A heady cocktail of booze, women and gambling on a big night out leads to a major hangover for hapless Gary in a new farce premiering at Sheringham Little Theatre.
And it certainly doesn’t impress his prim and proper potential mother-in-law who pays a surprise visit on The Morning After (The Night Before).
The comedy has been written by Norfolk actor Ryan Starling, who takes the lead role, during lockdown between shifts as an intensive care nurse.
Ryan, whose family are from North Walsham, said: “I wanted to create a modern traditional farce that appealed to a wider, younger audience – with all the traditional elements of pacey plot twists, mistaken identity and trouser dropping, but without the politically-incorrect elements of well-known older productions.
”I have changed a few stereotypes, but hopefully retained the essence of farce which is a heightened reality that is believable while you are watching it and being swept along by the action.”
