The Wyvern Theatre is set to get a taste of John Cleese next year.

Bang Bang!, written by Cleese, will arrive at the theatre in March of 2020

It will star Tessa Peake-Jones, from Only Fools and Horses fame, Tony Gardner, from children's show My Parents are Aliens, and Wendi Peters from Coronation Street.

The show is based off of Monsieur Chasse by Georges Feydeau and is described as a mix of French farce and Fawlty Towers and 'a door-slamming, trouser-dropping, balcony-climbing night of chaos set amidst the stylish apartments of Paris.

Speaking of the show, John Cleese said: "I am delighted to bring Bang Bang! to stages across the country with such a talented cast.

"Farce is my greatest love and I think UK audiences will love this hilarious classic."

The show will be performed at the Wyvern from Tuesday March 24 until Saturday March 28.
