KICK-STARTING the autumn season at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage is witty comedy Maintenance Man.

The plot centres around two characters - Bob and Chris - and their marriage which sinks to a level of constant bickering when Bob meets a woman called Diana.

Before long DIY enthusiast Bob transfers his affections to Diana but that relationship also seems doomed.

Stars of the show include Andrew Paul - better known as Dave Quinnan in The Bill and currently starring in Where The Heart Is - and Louise Harrison, who has also appeared in The Bill and was Dawn Prescott in Coronation Street.

The show runs from September 5 to 9 and tickets start at £11.50.

Four plays are being shown in September - The Maintenance Man, A Party to Murder, Funny Money and The Ghost Train.

Discounts are available from the box office if you book tickets for two or more plays.

The unsung heroes of musical theatre are celebrated in A Chorus Line as each highly-trained, underpaid dancer auditions for a Broadway show and the chance of a lifetime.

o The show runs until Saturday. To book tickets for any of the above call the box office on 08700 131 030 or visit www.gordon-craig.co.uk
