MOVE OVER MRS MARKHAM – Haulbowline Theatre Group




Hilarious Farce announced as Haulbowline Theatre Group’s new summer production

The hit classic Move Over Mrs. Markham is Haulbowline Theatre Groups next production and will open in the unique naval base theatre this summer from July 15th to 17th and 22nd to 24th. Directed by the award winning Pat Mahony, the hilarious romp Move Over Mrs. Markham written by Ray Cooney and John Chapman is set to be a sell out this season.

The play is set in a very elegant top floor London flat, belonging to Philip and Joanna Markham. Philip is a straight-laced publisher of children’s books, and he shares an office with his partner, Henry Lodge, on the ground floor. Philip had reluctantly agreed to let Henry borrow his apartment for the evening to ‘entertain’ his latest girlfriend. At the same time Joanna Markham had been persuaded by Linda Lodge to let her borrow the apartment so she can entertain her lover. What nobody knows is that the Interior Designer who had been decorating the apartment for the past three months had decided that this was the night he and the au pair girl would try out the new round bed! Not surprisingly, chaos and confusion ensue!

The situation is further complicated by the arrival of a straight-laced authoress of children’s books. The frantic efforts of the Markhams to hide the amorous goings-on lead to a hectic and hilarious evening.

The play features many of Haulbowline Theatre Group’s finest actors including, Niamh O’Connor, Paul Lynch, Joanne McCarthy, Joanne Geary, Eoin Gilley, Liam Burke, Dennis Cotter, Ita Coonan and Aoife Halligan.

In existence since 1963 and always a formidable presence on the amateur drama league competition scene, Haulbowline Theatre Group is renowned for its outstanding productions. The group has won numerous Acting and Theatre awards and has competed internationally in Morocco, Germany and the Dutch Antilles.
