WEDDED by JIM CARTWRIGHT
Wedded was originally a T.V. play, starring Sean Bean and Lesley Sharpe. It was adapted for the stage for Rocket Theatre who was able to bring it to audiences for the first time. The play sees a couple going through a rocky patch in their marriage and trying to come to terms with their emotions, helped along by the songs of Shirley Bassey.
The production was presented as a double bill with Jim Cartwright’s I Licked A Slag’s Deodorant.

The production was also due to play at The Rose Theatre, Ormskirk (28 Oct 2003) and the Mumford Theatre, Cambridge (29 Oct 2003) but sadly these performances had to be cancelled as the company had their van containing all the set, props, lighting board etc stolen, which meant also having to scurry around replacing everything as quickly as possible to complete the rest of the tour. Oh – the joys!
