A brand new comedy will be presented at an arts centre in the Staffordshire Moorlands this weekend.

'What Happened to Rick Marks?' will be staged at The Foxlowe Arts Centre on Friday (May 9) at 7.30pm.

Award winning author and playwright, Francis Beckett's latest play, this is an outrageous commentary on our times. It will bring back, for those old enough to remember the 60's, the rise of Flower Power and student riots and how, 40 years later, life in the real world has played its tricks. Personal secrets come tumbling out and be prepared for Rick's final comeuppance.

The performance will be staged by "The No Fixed Abode Theatre Company".

A spokesman at the Foxlowe Arts Centre added: "For those younger, it will perhaps be a shocking insight into what their parents generation got up to (and possibly still do). The play does deal with adult themes and, while there is nothing that could reasonably be considered offensive, we would hope that those under 16 would not understand what is going on. As a performed reading, admission is free. There will be an opportunity, at the end, to make an entirely voluntary contribution to production costs. Any contributions above costs will go to the Foxlowe."
