STUDIO Theatre's latest production is Wife After Death, a comedy by Eric Chappell directed by Bob Corwin.

Dave Thursby was a hugely successful television comedian, a national treasure loved by the public, a devoted husband to his fragrant wife, a model client for his agent and a staunch friend to his faithful gag writer, Harvey.

When Dave unexpectedly pops his clogs, these close companions are left bereft. Choking back the tears and protesting their love for Dave, the mourners set about exploiting his comic legacy for all it's worth.

This great comedy (by the writer of Rising Damp) was first performed in 2010 with Tom Conti as Harvey and has lots of gags without being a farce.

Studio Theatre's cast comprises Cecily Blyther, Ben Crocker, Kerra Dagley, Su Scott-Goldstone, Lin Wheelan and Robert Zarywacz.

Performances are on March 1 and 2 at the Landmark Theatre, Ilfracombe and on March 5 at the Plough Arts Centre, Torrington.
