Win tickets to Funny Peculiar at Norwich Theatre Royal

Prepare for some near-the-knuckle gags and dozens of double-entendres as a host of soap and TV stars take to the Norwich Theatre Royal stage in the revival of a classic comedy.

We have joined up with Norwich Theatre Royal to give you a prize that is guaranteed to make you shriek with laughter. Five prize winners will win a pair of tickets to see the show on Monday April at 30 at 7.30pm.

Mike Stott's award-winning Funny Peculiar stars soap favourite Craig Gazey who played Graeme Proctor in Coronation Street – which helped him win the Best Newcomer gong in the National Television Awards.

He joins an all-star cast in the comedy, which runs from April 30 to May 5 and also stars Vicky Entwistle, who played the feisty Janice Battersby in Coronation Street.

The cast also includes Gemma Bissix who has starred in both Hollyoaks and EastEnders, and Steven Blakeley who was a hit in ITV's Sunday night TV favourite Heartbeat.

The play follows the story of small-town grocer Trevor Tinsley who seems to have it all with a devoted wife and a new baby. Unfortunately, he gets tempted by the charms of his next-door neighbour prompting a host of misadventures bringing him into conflict with his strait-laced community.

John Bultitude, of Norwich Theatre Royal, said: 'Mike Stott's comedies are renowned for celebrating the humour of everyday life and this is no exception. Expect some real laugh-out-loud moments and the chance to relish in the misadventures of some true British characters.
