Free and Easy

Set in a 1960’s Manchester pub, this musical comedy follows the story of ‘The Last Drop’, a comfortable family-style pub and winner of Pub of the North, famous for their ‘Free and Easy’ or Karaoke nights. Their peaceful existence is threatened by crooked Ron Stone from the brewery who presents the landlords, Eric and Iris Dobbins, with an unpopular new business plan which they must follow or face eviction. The family, staff and regulars are devastated and come up with a plan to thwart the new changes. Featuring a live band, this feel-good musical is packed full of popular songs from the 60’s such as Da-Doo-Ron-Ron, Bye Bye Love and Downtown, which will have you singing all the way home!

This is an amateur production presented as part of the New Wolsey’s annual Open Season. Find out more by browsing the Creative Learning section of our website.
