Poster for Cabin Pressure by the Southsea Shakespeare Actors


The Southsea Shakespeare Actors present Cabin Pressure by John Finnemore.

This show consists of three episodes (Edinburgh, Limerick and Xinzhou) from the hit BBC Radio 4 comedy series, and will therefore include two intervals.

Cabin Pressure first hit the airways of Radio 4 in 2008 and has since won numerous comedy awards, including Best Radio Comedy in 2011. In 2014 it was voted "Comedy of the Year" across TV and radio, making it the first radio show to be given the honour.

The show follows the day-to-day working of MJN Air and its crew of four: Carolyn the owner; First Officer Douglas Richardson (formerly at Air England until he was sacked for smuggling); Captain Martin Crieff, whose love of flying and planes is let down by his lack of natural ability; and Arthur Shappey, Carolyn's overexcited, idiotic but well-meaning son who works as the steward.

Get your boarding passes ready for three comedic flights of fancy on Gerti (Golf Echo Romeo Tango India). It'll be brilliant!

This is an Amateur Production by arrangement with Unites Agents.
