The Air­drie Arts Guild Drama Group ha s an­nounced its next big spec­tac­u­lar stage show – and its set to be a “per­fick” pro­duc­tion to mark the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s 50th an­niver­sary.

The tal­ented thes­pi­ans are head­ing to 1950s Kent for their adap­ta­tion of hit nineties TV show The Dar­ling Buds of May.

Ti c k e t s for the per­for­mances – tak­ing place at Air­drie’s Sir John Wil­son town hall from May 16- 18 – are on sale now, with de­mand sure to be high.

A spokesper­son for the group said: “Now that the dust has set­tled on our highly suc­cess­ful fes­tive pan­tomime, Mother Goose, we are de­lighted to an­nounce that the 50th an­niver­sary play, which we will be per­form­ing for the first time ever, will be The Dar­ling Buds of May.

“Based on the pop­u­lar 1990s tele­vi­sion com­edy se­ries which starred David Ja­son, Cather­ine Ze­taJones, Pam Fer­ris and Philip Franks, it is also an adap­ta­tion of the 1958 novel of the same name, and its se­quels, by H.E. Bates.

“Set in ru­ral 1950s Kent, it fol­lows the life of the Larkin fam­ily; come along and see the hi­lar­i­ous sto­ry­line of Pop and Ma Larkin along­side their el­dest daugh­ter Ma­ri­ette, who even­tu­ally mar­ries tax in­spec­tor, Cedric ‘Char­lie’ Charl­ton.

“This fun-packed play will be a real treat for Mon­k­lands au­di­ences and we hope as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble turn out to join us.”
