ETA’s 25th anniversary production of The Front Page, an irresistible comedy with thrills and derring do set in a news 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).
