Based on the handmade film 'A Private Function" and the original story by Alan Bennett &Malcom Mowbray Adapted from the screenplay by Alan Bennett. originally produced in London by Cameron Macintosh. Book by Ron Cowen & Daniel Lipman. Music by George Stiles. Lyrics by Anthony Drewe.Betty Blue Eyes beautifully evokes that Bennett North, preoccupied with good dinners and bad feet. It contains the best song ever written about verrucas,a duet performed with clothes pegs on the nose,a Lindy-hop in an air raid and a chorus of town councillors in a pub urinal. Ther's an animatronic pig , a dream sequence involving Prince Philip doing a soft shoe shuffle with his hands tied behine his back. You won't stop laughing!
