Gladiators take to the boards in Sweet Charity
SKY 1 Gladiators Doom (Wayne Gordon) and Enigma (Jenny Pacey) have put their pugilists' sticks down to take part in Sweet Charity, a production by Rickmansworth Players.
The famously fit couple have taken on the roles of Daddy Burbeck, a leather-clad hippy who leads a new religion, and Rosie, a naive girl who joins a group of rather unsavoury dance hall hostesses.
The play follows the adventures of Charity Hope Valentine in New York City, with songs including Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now and The Rhythm Of Life.

He will be supported by Zoe Lyons, hailed as 'confident and razor-sharp' by the Observer Magazine, who takes a sideways look at life and transforms the absurd into hilarious comedy routines.

Ruislip Dramatic Society returns to The Compass
A BEDFULL of Foreigners, a hilarious comedy by Dave Freeman, scriptwriter of the Benny Hill shows and several Carry On films, will be brought to life by Ruislip Dramatic Society.
Set in a rundown hotel in a quiet French village near the German border, this fast-paced farce has the feel of 'Allo 'Allo and is packed with double-booked rooms, mistaken identities and hasty cover-ups.
When an English couple book the same room as a businessman for a night, only for his mistress and wife to arrive, things start to get complicated!
First performed in 1974, the show has been a huge success, performed worldwide in more than a dozen languages and, more recently, adapted into a film.
what? A Bedfull of Foreigners
where? The Compass, Glebe Road, Ickenham
when? From Wednesday, November 18 at 7.45pm
