For one night only, get ready to see the wild west get the comedy treatment as Hambledon Productions present A Fistful of Spaghetti at the Old Nick Theatre in Gainsborough.

Grab your guns, put on your spurs and laugh until your OK Corral isn’t okay anymore in this sure-fire send up of the classic Western genre.

After a whistle-stop, sell-out tour in October, A Fistful of Spaghetti is returning for a limited run around Lincolnshire before heading to the West End’s Leicester Square Theatre in March.

The simple townsfolk of Eagle-Creek-River-Hawk-River-Creek are jeopardised by the return of the evil One-Eyed Sid.

The befuddled Mayor, the under-qualified Sherrif and the crazy Old Hag round up a posse, but it’s no good – he isn’t afraid of cats.

As the death toll increases, there’s only one man who can come to their rescue – the legendary Drake Weston.

Well, that is so long as he ain’t away way on vacation.

Expect quick-fire puns, a whole bunch of good, bad and ugly characters and surreal slapstick in this all-out guns-blazin’, thigh-slappin’ poncho pastiche.

Hambledon are renowned for bringing quality original theatre to smaller venues, led by their founders Rachel and John Hewer.

John Hewer leads the cast for this production, alongside Peter Hoggart, Duncan Mason and Amy Shelley.

The show on Thursday, February 25 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £9 and £7 on 01472 388019.
