A musical adaptation of Alan Bennett and Malcolm Mowbray's film A Private Function. Cameron Mackintosh's production of Stiles and Drewe's Betty Blue Eyes starring Sarah Lancashire and Reece Shearsmith Twenty six years ago Alan Bennett and Malcolm Mowbray wove this story into a hilariously funny but sharply observed comic film called A Private Function which centered around Betty an adorable pig who is being illegally reared to ensure the local dignitaries can celebrate the Royal Wedding with a lavish banquet while the local population make do with Spam. Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman have brilliantly adapted and expanded this story for the stage and George Stiles and Anthony Drewe have written a deliciously infectious toe-tapping retro contemporary score. The result is an utterly British musical full of eccentric characters such as the strange odd couple Gilbert &ndash an evangelistic chiropodist and Joyce &ndash a nobody determined to be somebody Inspector Wormold - an obsessive destroyer of illegal meat Mother Dear &ndash &lsquoShe&rsquos seventy four and ravenous&rsquo along with a weird assortment of bullies spivs and snobs and of course Betty the pig.
