Plays & Players
Haddonfield Plays & Players stage No Sex Please, We're British, starting Friday at its theater on South Atlantic Avenue, just off Upland Way, in the Crows Woods section of Haddonfield. The comedy, written by Anthony Marriott and Alistair Foot and first produced in London in 1971, tells the story of a young bride who lives above a bank with her husband, the assistant manager. The woman places a mail order for glassware from a Scandinavian company and instead receives a package of racy material. The plot follows the pair as they try to deal with an onslaught of pornographic posts, and gets even stickier when others such as the man's mother, his boss, a visiting bank official, a high-ranking police officer, and even a friend become involved in the situation. A preview performance will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. $14 preview show. $16 all evening shows. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday shows May 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 and 19; 2 p.m. May 6 and 13. 856-429-8139 or www.haddonfieldplayers.com.
