Mexborough born actor Keith Barron is to return to the stage for a live version of classic sictom Duty Free.

The show sees the return of original cast members Keith and Gwen Taylor, who play working class duo David and Amy, and Neil Stacy, joined by Carol Royle, as the upper-middle class Robert and Linda who met whilst holidaying in Spain 28 years ago.

When opposites proved to attract, a most unlikely romance developed - with extraordinary consequences.

Now they are back: David more lustful, Amy more cynical, Robert more dangerous, and Linda more romantic than ever!

With love in the Mediterranean air, holidaymakers watch on in disbelief as deceptions, misunderstandings and preposterous situations unfold, with the love struck protagonists trying every trick in the book in order to keep their amorous intentions a secret.

Gwen Taylor played the title role in ITV sitcom Barbara, Ann Foster in Coronation Street, and has starred in Heartbeat, Class Act and Midsomer Murders.

In 2007 Barron joined ITV1’s Coronation Street as George Trench. Neil Stacy has appeared in many other television favourites including To Serve Them All My Days and Rumpole of the Bailey.
