The BGT ENGLISH THEATRE COMPANY & The NEW WORLD THEATRE CLUB
A COMEDY DOUBLE BILL
Two of Luxembourg’s most prominent English theatre groups (the BGT English Theatre Company and New World Theatre Club) are pleased to announce an evening of two one-act comedies:
HUSBANDS SUPPLIED by Falkland L. Carey
(produced by the BGT, directed by Tony Kingston)
FIFTY! by Archie Wilson
(produced by the New World Theatre Club, directed by Bjørn Clasen)
“HUSBANDS SUPPLIED” is an agency, run by the formidable Mrs May, to which single women who want a husband, or have lost a husband can come to find the man of their choice. It is Tuesday morning (always a busy time for the agency) and sure enough an assortment of unusual women arrives looking for a husband. As more and more women arrive, but no men, the situation grows tense. So when one man finally does appear the competition to have him gets fierce. But only one woman can win. Originally written in 1939, “Husbands Supplied” is a strikingly modern comedy which inverses the traditional male-female married role models to hilarious effect.

“FIFTY” is a classic British farce. Seemingly boring David turns fifty today, and his wife Fran and daughter Jessica arrange a surprise party for him, together with the jolly yet slightly annoying neighbour George and his wife Debbie. What none of them know is that David is having an affair. So when he shows up at the unexpected party with his half-naked mistress, the scene for havoc is set. Throw in a dubious son-in-law, a few alleged strippers and an escaped convict, and the disaster is assured ...as are the laughs!
