Andrew Dunn, Shobna Gulati and Sue Devaney return to their original roles for a new stage version of Victoria Wood’s hit BBC sitcom dinnerladies. The show, which initially ran for two series, 16 episodes in total, has been voted 9th in the all-time list of favourite sitcoms and now this stage version, comes to Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from Monday 28 September to Saturday 3 October.


The stage play, produced by Jan Hunt and David Graham, is based on the second TV series and follows the reluctant love story of Bren and Tony egged on by their work colleagues, Dolly, Jean, Twinkle and Anita.  Making frequent appearances are caretaker Stan, Phillippa from Human Resources, Secretary Jane and Bren’s truly dreadful mother, Petula, played originally by Julie Walters.


Andrew Dunn plays Canteen Manager Tony, his previous credits include The Bill, Holby City, Heartbeat and for two years he played the role of Roger Stiles in Coronation Street. Shobna Gulati returns as the slightly dippy Anita; Shobna is well known for playing the role of Sunita Alahan in ITV’s Coronation Street, a role she is returning to at the end of the year therefore the Grand will be the last venue that Shobna will play on this current tour.  Sue Devaney’s previous credits include Jonny Briggs, Casualty, Shameless and the character of Debbie Webster in Coronation Street; she plays her original role of Jane the Secretary in dinnerladies.


Producer David Graham has adapted this stage version from Victoria Wood’s TV scripts. He decided early on in the process that the touring cast and production should bear a very close resemblance to the well-loved TV series and this is exactly what has happened, with a strong, experienced cast re-creating some of the best drawn sitcom characters on television delivering some of the funniest lines.
