Steyning Drama Company present: CURL UP AND DIE

Following a sell-out run at the Barn Theatre in November 2023, this fast-moving action-packed farce, set in an antiquated hair salon, returns for the Steyning Festival on Sunday 26th May.

A complete makeover is the salon’s only chance of survival. Owner Ruth enters a top hairdressing competition, desperate to win a cash prize to pay for the upgrade, but all does not go according to plan.

Will Ruth achieve her dream to turn her beloved salon into one fit for her high-end clients, or will the blue rinse brigade and a fleet of unexpected visitors get in the way?

Curl up and Die was written by the highly acclaimed playwright Anna Longaretti. When asked, ‘What are the unique challenges of writing farce?’ she replied: ‘Writing farce is like trying to unravel spaghetti and then put it back exactly how it was – just don’t forget the sauce!’ Expect twists, turns, hilarity and calamity!

Director Glenn Chubb and Steyning Drama Company promise an entertaining evening - so roll up your curlers, book your tickets and make your appointment at Ruth’s salon!

26th May at Steyning Grammar School Drama Hall 19:30. Doors/bar opens 18:45.
