Summer 2021 at the Arches, Clifton Reynes, Milton Keynes.

Back in 2009 MKTOC produced an exclusive stage production of a number of tales from Ripping Yarns – the Boy’s Own adventure stories parodies by Michael Palin and Terry Jones  (Originally BBC TV 1977) to the stage.

You can read more about the Ripping Yarns series here on Wikipedia.

In Summer 2021, we’ll be staging 3 more of these daft stories in the  atmospheric, open air setting of the Arches theatre.

‘Tomkinson’s Schooldays’: New boy Tomkinson struggles to adjust to the horrors of boarding school and dreams of escape back to his family…

‘Golden Gordon’: Barestoneworth Unitid FC’s greatest fan, Gordon Ottershaw comes to the rescue of the failing club in a crucial match against Denley Moor FC…

‘Escape from Stalag Luft 112B’: Major Phipps, celebrated WWI escaper, attempts to break out of the infamous German POW camp…

This production, by kind permission of Michael Palin and the late Terry Jones’ wife Alison,  will be donating all profits to Dementia Charities.

We’ll be posting more information and casting opportunities soon!
