This May’s Brighton Fringe offers your first chance to see an outrageous new comedy…
It’s 1966. Legendary soap opera Sellotape Sisters (the pretensions of Downton, the production values of Crossroads) has been cancelled. With no ideas left for the final episode, the writers raid the actors’ private lives for storylines. In shock and denial, and with the last live broadcast looming and twenty-two million viewers watching, will the cast stick to the script?
Find out as Noises Off meets The Killing of Sister George (Via Acorn Antiques) in this farcical but heartfelt new play from former Coronation Street storyliner Lee Mattinson, produced by comedy specialists Signal.
“…an author with a fertile and restless imagination, most at home with finding truth in the most mind-blowing or unlikely situations.” British Theatre Guide on Lee Mattinson
Signal Theatre Company have been producing funny plays to make people laugh since 2007.
Their last (and biggest and boldest) show was the first London revival of Catherine (Mamma Mia!) Johnson’s 1998 play Shang-a-Lang at the King’s Head, Islington in 2014.
“…coarsely funny …mixes life lessons with verbal zingers. …enjoyably slick, snappy production… conspicuously well played…” **** The Times on Signal’s ‘Shang-a-Lang’
Sellotape sisters is suitable for ages 16 and above only.

“… like Lee Hall’s had his brain temporarily piloted by a miniaturised, cackling Philip Ridley. …that kind of brilliant.” Exeunt Magazine on Lee Mattinson’s I Heart Catherine Pistachio.
