Imagine what could have happened if Hadrian had to get planning permission for his wall to be built. He arrives at the Luguvalium planning office where he encounters the Planning Officer (“Everything in triplicate, sir”) and the bigoted Clerk (“I don’t trust him boss, he doesn’t look very Celtic”). “Up the Wall” is a fly on the wall mockumentary of that meeting. The sketch will be performed live at Penrith Players theatre on 31st March by the Juniors group (under eighteens) and will then be filmed and made available to other organisations. The sketch will also be performed at the John Peel theatre in Wigton in November by their adult group as part of a series of sketches with a Cumbrian theme. The dates of the four performances are yet to be confirmed.
