Friendsical, the Friends parody, comes to the New Theatre in Peterborough from March 3-7




The 2019 Edinburgh Festival smash-hit, Friendsical, returns to the stage after opening to a rapturous response from audiences.

The original and unique musical, a loving parody of the iconic TV show, Friends, will be on at the New Theatre in Peterborough from Tuesday, March 3-7.

With updates to the script and further developments to the design, the touring show is returning 'bigger and funnier than ever before.'

When Ross’ wife leaves him for another woman, he fears he will never find love again. But then Rachel runs back into his life... so will he end up with his one true love?

The show features original songs such as ‘(He’s her) Lobster!’, ‘Richard’s Moustache’ and ‘You’re Over Me, When Were You Under Me?’

And the gang take on naked Thursdays, a power cut, and a dinosaur convention! What could possibly go wrong?
