See Anne Reid in stage comedy with James Bolam

Anne Reid is one of those ex-Coronation Street actresses who keeps on working on stage and screen, and long may she continue.

Anne played Ken's wife Valerie Barlow in Coronation Street until she died by electrocution from a faulty hairdryer.

She's starring this week in a stage play called Fracked! Or Please Don’t Use The F-Word.
And the play is on a major UK tour

Fracked! is a provocative new comedy set in an idyllic English village threatened by an energy company intent on drilling for shale gas. Anne Reid plays Elizabeth, a retired academic who finds herself transformed from obedient citizen to angry protestor. While her increasingly grumpy husband (James Bolam) longs for the quiet life, Elizabeth soars to fame via social media.

This week the play runs at the Richmond Theatre and you can buy tickets here.
