Contemporary comedy

NIGEL Havers, one of our most popular stage and TV actors, is starring in Basket Case, a serious comedy by Nick Fisher, at his Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen this week.

Dependable Miranda and her ex-husband, the smoothly charming and wholly unreliable Guy, are thrown together in distressing circumstances, when their faithful old family pet take a turn for the worse.

Re-united over the dog basket, Guy and Miranda find they haven’t “moved on” quite as they’d imagined.

When they are joined by family friend James and Martin, the vet and long time admirer of Miranda, the scene is set for some startling home-truths as this rapid-fire foursome mines laughter and touching observations in equal measure.

Basket Case, a new play by Bafta award-winning writer Nick Fisher, is a perfectly crafted, quick-witted and contemporary comedy.

It runs this week until Saturday, October 8. Ticket details from the box office on 01224 641122 or
