A double bill of short comedies from veteran performers Kate Stafford and Nicholas Collett, based on the infamous Brinks-Mat robbery of 1983 when £26 million was stolen and never recovered. ‘Gold!’ is a sharp new comedy with a big heart and loads of cracking pop hits from the 1980s.
Julie and Dave are a normal suburban middle-aged couple living a quiet life but hiding a big secret: a huge stash of gold bars stolen from some very bad men four decades ago. Now their daughter wants an expensive instagram-worthy wedding, and the elderly gangsters are out of jail and looking for their gold. What are they going to do?
The first part of the evening is 'Coppers', a short comedy set in a fictional Home Office in 1983, featuring a Minister and the Chief of Police. Political speeches go horribly wrong and press conferences descend into chaos as our hapless duo grapple with how to keep their jobs and reputations intact as indiscretions from the past come back to bite them!
