The Wilde Theatre
South Hill Park

RG12 7PA

EBOS and South Hill Park are delighted to announce the details of their next fundraiser production for July 2018.

Guys and Dolls is a musical romantic comedy derived from Damon Runyon’s Broadway Stories which captured perfectly the variety of characters that inhabited a fast-paced, hand-to-mouth, rough and tumble New York City. Guys and Dolls focuses us on two of the unlikeliest of Manhattan pairings: a high-rolling gambler and a puritanical missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a crap game promoter, who is anything but.

Guys and Dolls takes us from the bustle of Times Square to the dance clubs of Havana and to the sewers of New York City as it demonstrates the great lengths to which a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a “doll”.
