Wandsworth New Stagers Present...

Have A Good Week Till Next Week

Have a Good Week Till Next Week is a new play by Ian Pring. It tells the story of what happens when two wrestlers who are involved in a ring feud become enemies for real when one becomes involved with the other’s wife. The show is set against the backdrop of the bizarre world of British wrestling in the 1970s and 80s, which attracted over 10 million TV viewers until ITV cancelled it in 1988.

It's 1975 and every Saturday afternoon, 10 million people tune in to watch the wrestling. Its stars, including Giant Haystacks, Mick McManus and Kendo Nagasaki, are household names. The papers say the matches are all fixed; the public doesn’t seem to care.

Mixing fictional characters with well-known contemporary figures from the world of wrestling, this is a gritty but affectionate look (think “The Damned Utd” meets “The Wrestler”) at an age when men in leotards grunted, groaned and threw each other out of the ring at venues like Huddersfield Town Hall, into the laps of screaming grannies armed with hatpins and knitting needles.

Wandsworth New Stagers production of Have A Good Week Till Next Week runs from 29th October to 1st November at 7.45 pm a t St. Anne’s Church Hall, St. Ann’s Crescent, Wandsworth, W18 2LR.

Adults £9.00 Concessions £5.00
