Royal & Derngate – Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em

Classic TV sitcom Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em takes to the stage

Everyone’s favourite 1970s classic TV comedy, Some Mothers Do ’Ave ’Em is back, as the first ever stage adaptation of the series comes to Northampton’s Royal & Derngate from Tuesday 1 to Saturday 5 May.

The show stars Joe Pasquale as the loveable accident-prone Frank Spencer, Sarah Earnshaw as his wife Betty and Susie Blake as his disapproving Mother-in-Law, Mrs Fisher.

The most successful sitcom of the decade gave us the hapless Frank and his long-suffering wife Betty with catch phrases galore and a never-ending list of disasters with roller-skating escapades and runaway chickens.

Joe Pasquale is a national comedy treasure who exploded onto our tellies in New Faces and went on to win I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and host The Price Is Right. He wowed Northampton audiences in 2014’s Peter Pan.

The stage adaptation of Some Mothers Do ’Ave ’Em has been written and directed by Guy Unsworth, based on the original TV series by Raymond Allen.

Some Mothers Do ’Ave ’Em takes to the Derngate stage from Tuesday 1 to Saturday 5 May with performances at 7.30pm each night and matinees at 2.30pm on Wednesday and Saturday. Tickets – priced from £23 to £37.50* – can be booked by calling Box Office on 01604 624811 or online at
