Description

This exuberant musical, with a delightful score, conjures up the timeless dream world of work-shy, beer-swilling Andy Capp, known the world over from Reg Smythe's cartoon strip in the Daily Mirror.

The story is essentially a narrative setting an upcoming wedding (of Raquel and Elvis) against the ongoing fracas in Andy and Flo's household. But it is also a faithful evocation of the cartoon, full of mother-in-law jokes, drunken escapades, big-bosomed, mini-skirted women wielding rolling pins and paunchy, cloth-capped men stomping around in boots.
