The late playwright Clive Exton (Jeeves and Wooster) never got to see a production of one of his final plays, comedy Barking in Essex. The world premiere of the show is tonight, 16 September 2013, at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London and promises to be one of the big shows over Christmas.

The comedy stars the inimitable Sheila Hancock and mega-successful comedian Lee Evans as mother and son Emmie and Darnley Packer, a dysfunctional family embroiled in a world of gangsters and hidden cash.

A strong supporting cast includes Keeley Hawes, Karl Johnson and Montserrat Lombard.
