Neighbourhood Watch

Alan Ayckbourn’s brand new comedy comes to Cheltenham


Directed by Ayckbourn himself, this is a UK premiere, following a highly acclaimed sell-out run in New York.


“the police are hanging on by a whisker... by that much... It’s not here, mark you.  It’s nationwide.  One breath of wind – anarchy!”


Things are not right on The Buebell Hill Development.  Theft, petty crime, vandalism, all the ills of modern suburban existence are on the increase.


Newcomers Martin and his sister Hilda are the crime wave’s latest victims and resolve to take action.  After all, the law of the land, all that’s right and proper and even God Himself are surely on their side.  But what starts out as a well intentioned neighbourhood watch scheme soon develops into something altogether more sinister.


Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious cautionary tale of the dangers of taking the law into your own hands, is his seventy-fifth play.


The all-star cast include Eileen Batty, Terence Booth, Phil Cheadle, Matthew Cottle, Richard Derrington, Frances Grey, Amy Loughton and Alexandra Mathie.
