TYLDESLEY Little Theatre (TLT) is opening its 99th season of productions with a farcical comedy.

Cash on Delivery, a play written by Michael Cooney, will by directed by Connor Parkinson, who has been nominated for four awards.

The story follows a man who uses every trick in the book to defraud the Department of Social Security (DSS) out of numerous benefits.

That is until a DSS inspector arrives on his doorstep.

The play opens at its Lemon Street theatre on Tuesday, October 1 and runs until Saturday, October 5.

Following this production, TLT's annual pantomime flies in on a magic carpet as Hannah Boardman brings Aladdin to the stage.

A TLT spokesman said: “Hannah has planned a spectacle of a show.

"We can’t wait to put it on for the audience and allow them to experience the wonder of the pantomime that TLT brings each and every year.”

As the new year kicks in, so does comedy Passing Strangers, directed by veteran director Jenny Whur.

The play focuses on the unlucky in love as they attend a singles event under the guises of men being "big in imports" and a doctor at a hospital.

In March, Kaye Taylor takes the audience back to 1939 with Strictly Murder as a man hides a dark truth from his love and a police inspector comes calling.

The season reaches its end with comedy Prepare to Meet Thy Tomb.

Margaret Speakes tackles the final act in Norman Robbins Tomb’s Trilogy as the murderous family, the Tomb’s, find their home crawling in unexpected guests.

Will any of them make it through the night?
