'Stop Messing About' was a radio show back in 1969-70, centred around Kenneth Williams. It was a replacement for the better-remembered 'Round the Horne', following the death of that show's anchorman, Kenneth Horne.
The stage play, written by the original co-writer Brain Cooke (and based on his radio scripts with Johnnie Mortimer) recreates a typical recording session for us all to enjoy.
Kenneth Williams is brought delightfully back to life by Robin Sebastian. Hugh Paddick is played by Nigel Harrison, Charles Armstrong recreates BBC announcer Douglas Smith and the wonderful India Fisher makes a marvellous Joan Sims.
It's essentially what one would expect; an evening of puns, innuendo and assorted filthy jokes. Needless to say, we loved it.

There was lots of humour too, with The Marx Brothers, Mae West, Marylin Monroe and a plethora of others 'appearing' at various times during the evening.
