Cash on Delivery to be performed at Mansfield’s Old Library

STAGEFRIGHT Theatre Group are preparing to stage Michael Cooney’s farce ‘Cash on Delivery’ at the Old Library in Mansfield on Thursday.

The plot focuses on Eric Swan and his various money-making scams and unravels into a hilarious story of mistaken identities, wrongful accusations, unwanted visits from an assortment of DSS inspectors, welfare counsellors, a corpse and a rebellious washing machine.

Suzanne Sladen, the chairman of the group, said: “This play is guaranteed to put a smile on your face, very welcome after a gloomy winter.

“We’ve had great fun rehearsing it, even though it was hard to remember who was impersonating who and when.”

Stagefright first got together in February 2009 and was originally made up from members of the Mansfield Community Theatre group.

They decided that they wanted to do more than just the annual community theatre production and decided to have a go at putting on a theatre production during the community theatre breaks.

Cash on Delivery - billed as the funniest show the group has done - is on at the Old Library at 7.30pm from tomorrow until Saturday.

Tickets are on sale now priced £6 and are available from, on Mansfield 652026 or by emailing
