Success for Life Jim at the Sundial Theatre

May 16th 2014


On 16th May 'Life Jim (But not as we know it)' had its debut public performance at the Sundial Theatre in Cirencester.  With the audience laughing, from the outset and throughout, the evening was deemed as a success.  Nobody left at the sight of two grown men in nappies and there was an almighty cheer for the 'Incontinence Pants' song, which is a good indication that everyone had a good time.

Next on the list is a mini tour in preparation for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015.

Sratton School PTA Show

Stratton School Jan 31st 2014


After a first preview back in July 2013 it was time to bring 'Life Jim (But not as we know it)', the first Grace and Favour production, to a wider public.  This we did in the shape of a fund raiser for the PTA of Stratton School in Cirencester.

We did have an initial scare, when one member of the cast was stuck on a motorway, north of Birmingham, with an hour and a half until show start, but fortunately he made it in time and so the sell out show was performed to a varied audience of parents, teachers and their friends and went down a storm. 

With one audience member saying that it reminded him of the Two Ronnies with a bit of Rowan Atkinson thrown in it was decided that we couldn't have asked for greater praise.

The next performance of 'Life Jim (But not as we know it)' will be at the Sundial Theatre in Cirencester on 16th May.

Tickets are available through Ticket Source
