Grunt and grapple

WRESTLING stars of the 70s and 80s are brought back into the spotlight in a new play to be shown in Pegswood.

Big Daddy V Giant Haystacks will be presented at Pegswood Community Project next week by The Foundry Group.

The hilarious, touching two-hander brings the characters back to full grunting, grappling life, showing the bizarre world they inhabited and the mood of a nation during their colourful era.

There is an ‘all-star cast of thousands’ to add to the mix, including Dickie Davies, Paul McCartney, Chris Tarrant, Frank Sinatra and Princess Margaret.

The show, which is brought to the area through the Highlights Community Touring Scheme, begins at 6pm on Thursday, November 3. For tickets or further information call 01670 512185.
