BLOW away the January blues with a laugh-out-loud comedy at Lyceum Theatre Oldham.
The theatre 2019-20 season takes you round the world and this month they’re stopping off in New York for The Prisoner of Second Avenue, one of Neil Simon’s fantastic comic plays, from 31 January – 8 February.
Perhaps more relevant today than it was when it was written 45 years ago, Mel is having a breakdown. We see him lose his job during economic crisis, deal with noisy neighbours and a burglary.
The unexpected heatwave sends Mel literally into meltdown! It’s a perfect setting for Simon’s acerbic wit and scathing one-liners.
Directed by Lyceum favourite Phil McCarthy, the six-strong cast includes Lyceum regulars and new faces, promising to make this the perfect antidote to your winter blues.
The Prisoner of Second Avenue runs from 31 January – 8 February 2020 at 7.30pm (no performance Sunday 2 February).
Tickets cost £9 each and are available online lyceumtheatre.org.uk or by calling the Box Office: 0161 628 2118.
