Work-shy Andy squanders his rent money on beer and stumbles home late again. His long suffering missus Flo vows to leave him, but Andy promises his racing pigeons will one day make them a fortune.

A few doors down, innocent young lovers Elvis and Raquel plan their wedding, but will their lives turn out just like Andy and Flo? Not if Raquel’s mother, Mrs Scrimmett, has anything to do with it…  

A warm-hearted look at relationships and the simple pleasures in overcoming life’s obstacles – guaranteed to stamp a smile on your face.

As Reg Smythe's long-running Daily Mirror comic strip prepares to celebrate its 60th year, join loveable rogue Andy Capp and the colourful characters from his North East town in this hilarious and poignant British musical.

“Rediscovered musical which, while not exactly a neglected classic, has its pleasures”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)

“Looks its age but smells as fresh as a newly cleaned pigeon coop... Alborough is ebullient and noisy. ”

Michael Coveney (What's on Stage, The Stage, Independent)
