The Quince Players, who perform at Cordes Hall, have had a great reaction to their take on Habeas Corpus, a laugh-out-loud comedy.
Julie Voice, press officer for the drama group, said that many members of the audience were caught pleasantly by surprise by the nature of the performance.
She said: “I think some people were expecting something completely different. They definitely weren’t expecting it to be as funny as it was.
“However, it was absolutely excellent, and it went down very very well. It was quite simply an outstanding show.”
The play, which ran from September 12-14 and 19-21, was written by Alan Bennett and featured characters reminiscent of Carry On characters played by Barbara Windsor and Kenneth Connor.
The opening night of the show was in aid of Sunninghill-based charity The Autism Trust, raising £430.22.
The money was raised through a raffle and also an allocation of 25 tickets that the charity could sell and keep the proceeds of.
The performance also bodes well for audtions for their pantomime in 2014, Wind In The Willows, with the last audition session tonight at 7.30pm.
Mrs Voice said: “Pantomimes are not just popular with children but also for adults. People really enjoy the way we come across and pull those types of shows off.”
