Welcome to Rising Damp

ITV’s top comedy of all time, RISING DAMP, comes to the stage in a brand-new production from the Comedy Theatre Company, producers of the stage versions of Victoria Wood’s dinnerladies  and BBC TV’s Birds Of A Feather.


An un-named northern university town is home to Rupert Rigsby, landlord of arguably the seediest, most run-down boarding house that England has to offer.  His unlucky tenants include Ruth Jones, an administrator at the university, Alan, a medical student and Philip, who is studying town and country planning.  Between them, Alan and Philip are the focus and foil of the majority of Rigsby’s many prejudices, usually at the expense of his dignity and standing in the eyes of Miss Jones, with whom he is hopelessly and pathetically in love.


“The stage version of ITV’s best and certainly most highly-respected sitcom to date, RISING DAMP shines as a masterwork and is a real highlight.  Writer Eric Chappell’s fabulous dialogue sparkles to this day.  There’s really not much more we can say – it’s just a fantastic night out all-round”.  -  British Comedy Guide
