Andrew Dunn and Shobna Gulati star in Victoria Wood’s Dinnerladies

Take one huge hit sitcom, place on a stage in a world premiere national tour starring Andrew Dunn (Tony) and Shobna Gulati (Anita) from the original cast, blend in Victoria Wood’s writing – undoubtedly some of the funniest on television, and whip into a play based on the second TV series, following the reluctant love story of Bren and Tony, egged on by Dolly, Jean, Twinkle and Anita. Mix in caretaker Stan’s words of wisdom and coat with regular appearances by Phillippa from Human Resources and Petula, Bren’s dreadful mother, and you have a recipe for madness, mirth and twelve rounds of toast!

For the very first time, Victoria Wood’s hit BBC TV sitcom Dinnerladies comes to the stage as part of a major national tour.

The show, which initially ran for two series from 1998 to 2000, was voted 9th in the all-time list of favourite sitcoms, a remarkable feat for a programme where only 16 episodes were ever made.

Andrew Dunn and Shobna Gulati are best-known from their roles in Coronation Street, Shobna having played Sunita Alahan for six years and Andrew having recently finished playing the role of Janice’s love interest Roger Stiles.

Apart from the opportunity to experience some of Victoria Wood’s funniest writing, Dinnerladies is the perfect feel-good show.

Dinnerladies, Theatre Royal, Brighton New Road, Mon 6 – Sat 11 July.
Eves 7.45pm, Thu & Sat mats 2.30pm. Box Office 08448 717 650 (bkg fee)

Our new programme for sees Juice FM presenter Guy Lloyd investigate all manner of things. He starts off with chart-topping band The Hoosiers who were mega-successful a couple of years ago, were dropped by their major label and have become fashionably independent. Their chart-topping album cost £1 million to record, their new album £100 and we reckon it's just as good. We have exclusive footage of this new record. Guy does crazy-golfing with them, checks out their sound-check and witnesses the fans' adoration of the band at Audio in Brighton. In future shows Guy will be doing waxing, Dot Cotton, air guitar and needs your suggestions for more crazy things (or people) to do. Send to
