Clitheroe Parish Church Amateur and Operatic Dramatic Society will be presenting ‘Off the Hook, the hilarious play written by Derek Benfield.

The farce sees two crooks, Fred and Charlie, spring a dim-witted Harold Spook out of prison only to realise there's been an identity mix-up. Along the way, we meet a variety of staff and guests staying at the hotel - each contributing their own barriers to the crooks' plans to find hidden money.

The play is full of laughs, and is sure to be a wonderfully entertaining affair, directed by Lesley Haworth.
