Photo Flash: First Look at The English Theatre of Hamburg's TOUCH AND GO

TOUCH AND GO, a farce by Derek Benfield, is now playing at The English Theatre of Hamburg through 9 February, 2013. Broadway World has a first look at the production in the photos below!

When Brian takes up jogging, his wife Hilary is overjoyed. But, instead of jogging, Brian is in fact spending a couple of hours with his girlfriend, Wendy, in his good friend George's flat. This arrangement works wonderfully for some time; for, while Brian is with Wendy, George knows there is no danger of his being caught at Brian's flat with Brian's wife, Hilary! The good times come to an abrupt end, however, when George's wife Jessica arrives home a day early from the United States and finds her flat occupied by Brian and Wendy. Thinking fast, he claims that Wendy is just a Red Cross nurse who rescued him from a jogging accident, but Jessica is still suspicious. This is modern British farce at its hilarious best and a sure guarantee of a delightful evening in the theatre.

Derek Benfield (1926—2009) was born in Bradford, Yorkshire. He trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and made his first appearances with Brian Rix's company after which he acted for many years in various repertory companies. He appeared in a wide variety of parts in the theatre and on TV and was a prolific writer of comedy for the stage. His many entertaining stage plays continue to be widely produced throughout the world and include CAUGHT ON THE HOP, BEYOND A JOKE, BESIDE MANNERS, LOOK WHO'S TALKING, FISH OUT OF WATER, FUNNY BUSINESS and SECOND TIME AROUND. His farce, TOUCH AND GO, is being performed at The English Theatre of Hamburg for the first time in the theatre's long history. It is a pleasure to produce such a entertaining play. We hope you enjoy the playwright's superb use of comic technique and his marvellous one-liners. Apart from his creative work in the theatre, Derek Benfield delighted in watching cricket and tending his garden at his home in Barnes, south-west London. He is survived by his wife and by their son and daughter.
