Performances of black comedy Caramba’s Revenge are taking place at Scunthorpe’s Plowright Theatre this weekend.
A group of elderly ladies who form a cooperative, pooling their pensions to make ends meet. However, when one of the group, Violet, dies, the other three, realising they need to hold on to her pension book, omit to tell the authorities. The plot thickens when Violet’s granddaughter discovers the truth but, instead of reporting them to the police, suggests that their standard of living would be much improved if other ladies were encouraged to join, who, after handing over their pension book, could “disappear” too.
Friday, June 1 (7.30pm), Saturday, June 2 (7.30pm). Plowright Theatre, Scunthorpe. Tickets: £9. Call 0844 854 2776.
