About the show 

Alan Bennett and Malcolm Mowbray's comic film A Private Function, which centred around Betty, an adorable pig, who is being illegally reared to ensure that local dignitaries can celebrate the 1947 Royal Wedding with a lavish banquet, has been brilliantly adapted for the stage. With a deliciously infectious, toe-tapping, retro contemporary score, the result is an utterly British musical, full of eccentric characters, including our star, Betty the pig!
