The JAPE Collective

By JAPE Productions
Comedy, drama and variety – all in the name of entertainment. We're professional actors from Lancashire, writing and performing our own material. There’s observational humour in DUMMY CABS, based on Peter Franksson’s experience as a taxi driver in the 1990’s; vintage-style radio comedy from our live performance show THE RED ROSE TATTOO; Alan Veale’s award-winning THE QUIET ONE brings an old lady struggling to get rid of her smelly husband... or maybe you’re in the mood for farce? Then listen to all three episodes of TEETHING PROBLEMS for an extraction one dentist should never have attempted.
