The Barn Theatre in Cirencester previously announced that they would be giving NHS workers and St John Ambulance volunteers free tickets to the show.

NHS workers and St John Ambulance volunteers will be able to claim two free tickets for any Sunday matinee performance throughout the run, subject to availability, using the code THANKYOUNHS when booking and showing a valid ID on arrival to the performance. The tickets can be claimed for all tiers in the auditorium except Band D.

Barn Theatre producer Beth George said: “We would not have survived the past year without the tireless work of the NHS and St John Ambulance, who have been protecting our country on the frontline of this devastating pandemic.

“This is just a small token of our appreciation for their heroic work and we hope that this feel-good comedy can provide an evening of much needed escapism and joy.”
