The Smash Hit Spoof Western by John Hewer
Grab your guns, put on your spurs and laugh till your O.K. Corral isn’t O.K. anymore in this sure-fire send up of the Western genre!
After a whistle-stop, sell-out tour in October, ‘A Fistful of Spaghetti’ returned for a limited run around Lincolnshire before heading to the West End’s Leicester Square Theatre in March 2016.
When the simple townsfolk of Eagle-Creek-River-Hawk-River-Creek are jeopardised by the return of the evil One-Eyed Sid, the befuddled Mayor, the under-qualified Sheriff and the crazy Old Hag round up a posse, but it’s no good; he isn’t afraid of cats… As the death toll increases, there’s only one man who can come to their rescue…. The legendary Drake Weston.
Let’s just hope he ain’t away on vacation…
Expect quick-fire puns, a whole bunch of good, bad and ugly characters and surreal slapstick in this all-out guns-blazin’, thigh-slappin’ poncho pastiche!
Cast – John Hewer, Peter Hoggart, Duncan Mason, Amy Shelley Director – Peter Hoggart | Assistant Director – Jane Crawshaw Composer – Christopher Peters
