Remember Mrs Slocombe’s pussy? Going up?? Yes, it’s Are You Being Served?
To the delight of its fans everywhere the smash hit television comedy has been adapted for the stage by its original creators. Based on the long-running BBC TV sit-com and set in the ladies and menswear departments of Grace Brothers, all your favourite characters from Captain Peacock to Miss Brahms to the irrepressible Mr Humphries.
The double entendres are non-stop as the well-loved staff of Grace Brothers department store prepare for a sale and then depart on a staff holiday at a one-star hotel in Spain. With the aid of a nuns habit, a bowler hat and Mrs Slocombe’s Union Jack knickers they survive their holiday with everything intact but their modesty!
