BIG screen family fun and a classic Whitehall farce take centre stage during a busy week at Lowestoft's Marina Theatre.

The national tour of classic farce One For The Pot continues its run at the theatre this weekend with performances tonight> at 7.30pm and tomorrow at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

One For The Pot, by Ray Cooney and Tony Hilton, originally ran at London's Whitehall Theatre for over 1,200 performances and has gone on to become one of the most popular and revived of the Whitehall farces.

The production tells the story of a wealthy mill owner who offers £10,000 to the son of a former business associate on the condition that he is the only living relative. Bill Hickory Wood arrives to claim his money, however it isn't long before a procession of Hickory Woods follow - all claiming to be the sole living relation and rightful beneficiary. Chaos ensues with a series of mistaken identities and hilarious confusion.

Marina favourite and “Master of Farce” Damian Williams performs all of the Hickory Woods characters, starring alongside Lynette McMorrough, Andrew Ryan and a full supporting cast.

From Sunday the Marina presents a series of family films specifically for the half term school holiday. The animated comedy WALL-E (U) screens on Sunday at 4pm and Monday at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

Tuesday and Wednesday brings the critically acclaimed film The Fox and the Child (U) at 2.30pm, while Asa Butterfield, Sheila Hancock, Jack Scanlon and David Thewlis star in The Boy In Striped Pyjamas (12A) at 2.30pm and 7.30pm on Thursday and 2.30pm next Friday.

Fans of the summer hit Mamma Mia! (PG) can catch the final screenings of the film on Tuesday and Wednesday at 7.30pm, with sing-along versions at 7.30pm next Friday and 2.30pm and 7.30pm next Saturday.
