Topless

Miles Tredinnick
Sandie is your sexy tour guide for a fabulous tour of London on an open top sightseeing bus. She can't wait to point out all the sights from Big Ben to the Tower of London and tell you all about their history. Unfortunately, that's not all that she wants to talk about. Nearly every sight along the way seems to trigger off some hilarious memory to do with her 'gorgeous Duncan, who's the spitting image of Mel Gibson'. Domestic problems and sightseeing become entwined as Sandie reveals how she deals with her straying husband in this punchy, heartfelt comedy that takes you on an extraordinary journey through the streets of London.

Topless In Philadelphia

Miles Tredinnick
Welcome to Philadelphia, the city that gave us the Declaration of Independence, the Liberty Bell, Grace Kelly and the Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Gus Clover is your tour guide on an open-top London sightseeing bus driving through the streets of the City of Brotherly Love. He's keen to show you the city he loves from Betsy Ross's house to the 'Rocky Steps' but the sights keep triggering off memories from his past. Hear how his personal hero Benjamin Franklin inspired Gus to become an inventor. Laugh as he reminisces at how he met and married his librarian wife Lynda. Discover how it all went wrong when he brought Popeye the puppy into the family home just as Lynda was about to give birth. This is the Philadelphia story that has nothing to do with the Main Line!

Up Pompeii

Miles Tredinnick
Based on the original characters devised by Talbot Rothwell and Sid Colin for the Frankie Howerd BBC comedy, this hilarious romp through ancient Pompeii brings back all the television favourites in this full-length play seen on a national tour in 2011 starring Damian Williams as Lurcio, Senator Ludicrus Sextuss slave. As Lurcio attempts to deliver his prologue and begin proceedings, hes quickly caught up in the myriad of sexual liaisons in all quarters of his masters house. Why does Ludicrus not leave for the Senate meeting in Rome? Why does his wife return so quickly from the country? Who will take care of the escaped slave girl, Voluptua, and will Nausiuss love poetry improve? Whilst growing chaos ensues, an increasing rumbling is heard in the distance  what could that possibly be? A riot from start to finish.
