Footlights on tour

Perrier nominees hit road

Cambridge Footlights are to take their Perrier-nominated show Far Too Happy on tour.

The student show, which was shortlisted for the best newcomer award at the Edinburgh Festival, starts its 15-date tour in London on Sunday.

It kicks off at the Fortune Theatre, Covent Garden, where Beyond the Fringe went after their Edinburgh success 40 years ago, and winds up with a run of five home town shows at the ADC Theatre, Cambridge in October.

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
