About the production

THE BEST MAN is an hilarious look at the ups the downs and the highs and lows during the morning of what may well be a typical run of the mill wedding. The action starts off with the prospective groom's best mate Steve , played by Mark Freeman, having been told that he is no longer to be the best man. His anger and disappointment isn't helped by the fact that his sister Jude, played by Kirsty Bishop, is to be a bridesmaid.

The person behind all the aggravation is, surprise, surprise, the brides mother, played by Sue Read. Throughout the two years that the wedding has been planned, Steve claims that it could have been done in a week, by the 'mother in law from hell' who has made sure that every last detail has been done her way. Steve refuses, point blank, to even go to the wedding. The blushing bride, played by Sarah Goodman, arrives on the scene to try and make him change his mind but to no avail.

To add to the trauma the prospective bridegroom, Stuart, played by Shaun Kane, turns up admitting that, against his better nature he told his future mother in law, to " get stuffed." Eventually the dreaded aforementioned Mrs Radley, or as Steve calls her Mrs Ratbag, turns up to find out what the hell is going on. Father of the bride, the down trodden Rowland Radley, played by Brian Havers, also arrives and can't imagine what any problems there might be, or can he ? Will everybody live happily ever after ?
