But as a local theatre prepares to show its own adaptation of the film classic, it has become clear that not everyone can be seduced by Mrs Robinson's charms. In fact the director of the production has received dozens of abusive calls and emails branding him a 'pervert' and a ' pornographer' over the nude scene, while the cast have been warned they 'will burn in hell'. Members of a local church are even threatening to protest outside the Colin Smith Theatre in Luton on the play's opening night this week. Another said: 'What disgusting pleasure do you get out of putting full frontal nudity on stage? You should be shut down. The rumpus has been triggered by a scene in the production where Mrs Robinson, to be played by Natalie Gordon, 41, tries to seduce graduate Benjamin - the son of her husband's business partner - played by year-old Tom Jennings. Stuart Farrar, chairman of the Colin Smith Theatre, yesterday said the abuse had simply made the cast more determined that the show should go on as planned, from Tuesday night. He said of the messages: 'We may have had quite a lot from the blue-rinse brigade, who like Alan Ayckbourn farces. That's about as risque as they get.
