The Gin Chronicles

14 July 2023

Interrupt the Routine

Main Stage


If you enjoy The Goon Show, Blackadder, Monty Python or the works of P. G. Wodehouse, we think you’ll enjoy The Gin Chronicles. This vintage, radio-style comedy takes you into a world of mischief, mayhem, live sound effects and 1940s derring-do that’ll have you leaving the theatre with a smile on your face.

John Jobling is an endearing upper-class half-wit who stumbles across detection as a pastime. Doris Golightly, his erstwhile housemaid, ends up being his assistant to prevent him from doing anything life-threatening. In this, their first adventure, they seek to solve the mystery of missing gin magnate Cornelius Juniper, owner and distiller of the wondrous ‘Captain Botanicals Navy Strength Gin’.

Enjoy a pre-dinner performance at 5pm or an evening show at 8pm.
