Virgin mirth: comic Maltby show’s new take on Bible tale

A NEW theatre group raises the curtain on its first production next weekend.

Cut-Up Theatre Company, set up by Wickersley School teachers Anthony Lancashire and Adam Hart, will present Oliver Lansley’s adult comedy Immaculate at The Wesley Centre in Maltby next Friday and Saturday.

The play takes in the topics of faith, sex, contraception and pregnancy and is billed as a hilarious comedy with strong language and adult themes.

Cut-Up chairman Anthony Lancashire said: “We are a brand new amateur theatre company for adults and this is our first show. 

“We aim to offer high quality, entertaining theatre in smaller venues.”

Immaculate, a modern take on the Bible’s virgin birth scenario, premiered at the Edinburgh fringe in 2005 and has since been performed at venues all over the country.

It will be directed for the Maltby run by Adam and feature Anthony in a cast of six.

Tickets for the show, which begins at 7.30pm, are available from ticketsource.co.uk/cut-up-theatre-company.
