Create. Challenge. Entertain.

THE FRONT PAGE by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur

ETA’s 25th anniversary production of The Front Page, an irresistible comedy with thrills and derring do set in a Courthouse press room. An amazing array of characters capture the mood of 1920s Chicago in the intimate surroundings of St Ninian's Hall. Follow the trials and tribulations of Hildy Johnson, ace reporter. Will he settle for happiness with fiancee Peggy? Or be tempted by the scoop of the century... exclusive coverage of the execution of Earl Williams!

Gorgeously melodramatic. One of the funniest and most exciting of American plays’ (New York Times).


Monday 6th to Saturday 18th August

7:30pm (plus 2:30pm matinee on Saturdays)

Tickets £12 (concessions £10) available from the Fringe Box Office, or use our Contact Us page
