About the play
This hilarious comedy begins when newlywed Francis Hunter innocently orders some Scandinavian glassware. What arrives is Scandinavian pornography, and Francis and her husband Peter find themselves inundated with pornographic material from the ‘Scandinavian Import Company’. The fun continues when a prim and proper bank cashier gets entangled with two voluptuous girls who dish out their ‘special’ and ‘eccentric’ services!

No Sex Please, We’re British ran in London for over eight years and also delighted Broadway audiences. This is farce at its best!

 CAST LIST

English accents are required for all roles.

Peter Hunter – Large role (25-45+ years)
Peter is the lead character around which the whole story hangs. He needs to be energetic and have good stamina as he is on stage for virtually the entire play.

Frances Hunter – Large role (25-45+ years)
Peter’s new wife. Similarly energetic, and also a large role. The actress should be happy to appear in limited clothing onstage.

Brian Runnicles – Large part (25-60 years)
Nervous and geeky character. Slightly put-upon character, but a large amount of work to do on stage. Needs an actor with good comic timing, facial expressions and body language.

Eleanor Hunter – Large role (50+ years)
Peter’s mother. She is an elegant and snobby character, and clearly resents Frances for marrying her son. Lots of stage time having digs and pokes at Frances, and quietly stealing several scenes. Proper English accent required.

Leslie Bromhead – Medium role (50+ years)
Peter’s boss, the bank manager. Appears at first to be an ogre, but we see him mellow a lot. He has an eye for the ladies and takes no time to start chatting up Peter’s mother.

Superintendant Paul – medium size role (any age)
This character is the stock policeman character, but finds himself in several awkward situations. Can easily be injected with wit and enthusiasm. Ideal for an actor wanting a smaller part.  Age is not important, but great character acting is!!

Mr Needham – medium size role (40+)
This character arrives in act 2 only, and similarly to Mr Bromhead, he appears standoffish at first, but he later gets into all sorts of fun. Actor needs to be comfortable appearing semi naked on stage, and have the two ladies all over him at certain points. Proper English accent required.

Susan – smaller role (20s)
Susan is a young, attractive prostitute and appears in suggestive outfits. This is a comic, fun role.

Barbara – non speaking smaller role (20s)
Barbara is also a prostitute. Don’t be put off by her non speaking role. She has a lot of fun with Mr Needham, and although the part is small, she will steal the show for sure (act 2 only).

Delivery person – small role / backstage
Small part with limited lines. Can be played by any man or woman. Comes on at various points in the play. Perfect for anyone wanting to have a small involvement on stage, and help out backstage.

Gold Coast Little Theatre is a community theatre and all performers are involved on a volunteer basis.
