The Netherley Hillbillies Take The Stage At The Royal Court

“Come listen to a story ’bout a man name Jed, 
Found it really hard to keep a roof over his head. 
Then one day he escaped from being poor 
When the lottery machine spat out six of his balls.”

Jed, Lisa, Elly May and mother-in-law Renie aren’t used to being rich. They were always rich in spirit and all that but now they’re proper rich. Like ‘big house in Formby’ rich. 

Jed has got the rags to riches gang together and loaded up the van, it’s time to get out of Netherley and into something more befitting of a family with serious wedge. It’s goodbye to a brick outhouse and hello to a beautifully appointed gatehouse. The only problem is that the riches to rags neighbours aren’t so keen. 

Writer, Barbara Phillips has struck oil with a brilliant new comedy about what happens when life-changing money lands in your lap. The grass might be greener but the gardener is terribly expensive. 

This is a show that will have you laughing from skinted to minted so strap your rocking chair to the roof of the car and get down to The Royal Court.

The cast of this riot of a show, directed by Deborah Yhip, includes Reiss Barber, Paul Duckworth, Charlie De ‘Ath, Vicky Entwistle, Lynn Francis, Jasmine Herrington and Sarah White.
