With no pun left un­turned, no iden­tity un­mis­taken, and ev­ery en­ten­dre dou­bled, this is the play­wright at his most play­ful and hi­lar­i­ous, con­coct­ing a de­light­ful con­fec­tion that is vo­lu­mi­nously swathed (for the ab­sur­dest of rea­sons) in tar­tan.

A treat for all the fam­ily. Tick­ets cost £8 (£7 conc) and can be bought from from Stam­ford Arts Cen­tre 01780 763203.

The show fol­lows En­rico Cu­ruso’s es­cape from the Great San Fran­cisco Earth­quake of 1906, where he not only faces the fierce fires and his ho­tel col­laps­ing around him but also his own ghosts. In­cred­i­bly beau­ti­ful sto­ry­telling with live opera from Puc­cini, Rossini and Leon­cav­alio, com­bin­ing to re­veal the heart be­hind the leg­end. Tick­ets cost £12 (£10)

The show gives the au­di­ence a break­neck roller coaster ride through Vi­en­nese so­ci­ety in the mid 19th cen­tury, in the com­pany of the in­cor­ri­gi­ble but naive Christo­pher and Wein­berl.

When their mas­ter, Herr Zan­gler, goes off to Vi­enna to see his for­mi­da­ble fi­ancée, Madame Knorr, the two shop as­sis­tants take the op­por­tu­nity to shut up shop, aban­don­ing the roll­mops, smoked eel and pigs’ trot­ters for an ad­ven­ture in the city.

Also on the run are Zan­gler’s ward, the beau­ti­ful Marie, and her ne’er-do-well and ap­par­ently pen­ni­less lover Son­ders.

An al­ready com­plex web of re­la­tion­ships and mis­al­liances is fur­ther com­pli­cated by Herr Zan­gler’s propen­sity to mis­pro­nounce and man­gle ev­ery ut­ter­ance, lead­ing to ever greater con­fu­sion and mis­un­der­stand­ing.

Throw into the mix a li­bidi­nous coach­man, a man-hun­gry widow, a GREAT ES­CAPE: Cu­ruso and the Quake.
