We're looking forward to seeing MKTOC at The Arches Theatre in September!

This hilarious local comedy troupe will be taking the stage on 12th/13th and 19th/20th September. There will be a mixture of performance times across the two weekends, including matinee and early evening shows.
As MKTOC put it, "By popular demand, we return to war-torn occupied France and the café of Rene Artois with all of your much-loved characters from the hit comedy TV series. Witness Rene attempt to juggle running a café, love affairs with numerous serving girls, and support the French resistance while treading a dangerous path with the Germans and the Gestapo."
"We promise escaped British airmen, knockwurst sausages, some dodgy accents and of course a picture of "The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies", all in the atmospheric surroundings of the Arches outdoor theatre ..."
Those of you who have seen MKTOC in action, know that this is a show not to be missed. Tickets will be going on sale very shortly via both the MKTOC and The Arches websites. Also, they have let slip a few of the cast members so "Leesen verrry carefully, I weel say zis only wurnce...!"
David Lovesy will be reprising the role of Rene Artois
Steve Clark will once again play Officer Crabtree
Sean McDermott will take on Herr Flick

About David Pibworth ...
David is the owner of David Pibworth Productions who provides entertainment for theatre and corporate events. This ties in very well with The Arches Theatre, an outside venue that David owns underneath a disused railway line, equidistant from Bedford, Northampton and Milton Keynes. This was one of the few venues that could operate with social distancing in place during the summer of 2020 and where they ran everything from Shakespeare to Richard Digance through the summer months.
David has been involved in light entertainment for many years, even going back as far as working on a production with Norman Wisdom in London. He has a knack of keeping in touch with everyone he's worked with and would bring such people as Chas and Dave, Kenny Ball and Acker Bilk round to play locally when the chance arose.
His company also represent the stage rights for Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, the writers of Steptoe and Son and Hancock's Half Hour. He has recently negotiated permission with Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais to produce Porridge on stage although this is all hampered by the current situation and the availability of theatres.
Next year, at the Arches Theatre, he will produce Ripping Yarns, written by Michael Palin and Terry Jones. This will be an interesting production as not only does one episode involve playing a football match, but also with the agreement of Michael Palin and the wife of the late Terry Jones, it has been decided that all the profits on this production will go to a dementia charity as Terry Jones died as a result of dementia, as did David's father and uncle.
