And look out in next week’s Guardian for three pairs of competition tickets to be won.

The story tells of an American family caught up in the struggle between personal responsibility and duty to their country.

Joe Keller, a successful self-made man, has done a terrible thing during World War II; hurriedly trying to meet an order from the Army, he knowingly sold them defective aeroplane parts which later caused the planes to crash and killed 21 men.

He engineered his own exoneration and falsely turned in his business partner.

Now, his son is about to marry the partner’s daughter, the affair is revisited and his lie of a life is revealed.

Joe, spending his whole life in the pursuit of wealth for the sake of his family, represents the American Dream gone wrong.

Director Richard Hinchliffe said: “We have done a lot of comedy in the past, when people come they are guaranteed a laugh.”

“This time we thought we would try something different.”

Performances are at 7.30pm on 17th, 18th and 19th March.

Tickets cost £6 and can be purchased on 01909 501817. For more information email info@dukeriestheatregroup.org.uk
