Ripping Yarns - Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy

Ripping Yarns
1st – 3rd September, 

Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy return to The Arches with their adaptations of the final three chapters of Ripping Yarns – the Boy’s Own adventure parodies by Michael Palin and Terry Jones (originally BBC TV 1977).

All monies raised through ticket sales will go to the National Brain Appeal - a dementia charity.

They have already staged 6 of the 9 episodes (3 indoors in 2009 and 3 more at the Arches theatre in Summer 2021).
Join us for a hilarious outdoor performance of:

- ‘The Curse of the Claw’: A strange Burmese relic carries a terrible curse that our hero tries to lift to save his family
- ‘Murder At Moorstones’: Hugo and Dora drive down to see Mumsie and Dadsie-pie for a long weekend in the country. But their tophole weekend turns out to be longer than they thought.
- ‘Whinfrey’s last case’:  Set in 1913, Britain’s greatest (and overworked) secret agent takes a much-needed holiday to Cornwall and uncovers a German invasion plot.

This production, by kind permission of Michael Palin and the late Terry Jones’ wife, Alison, will be raising money for the National Brain Appeal – a dementia charity.
In 2021, a grand total of £10,000 was raised by ticket sales and generous donations for this worthy cause.

Tickets cost £15 per person

GATES OPEN FROM 6.30PM FOR A 7.30PM PERFORMANCE. Please do not arrive before 6.30pm.

Don’t forget to bring your own chair and a picnic to enjoy at our outdoor theatre.
