With his bushy moustache and ever-present cigar, Groucho Marx is one of the most recognisable stars in Hollywood history.

Yet in what may be the most ridiculous and unnecessary content warning yet, audiences at a new stage show about the wisecracking comic actor are being cautioned that it features a 'prop cigar'.

The Arcola Theatre in Dalston, East London, is sending the warning to anyone who buys tickets for Dinner With Groucho, a play which imagines a meeting between the Marx brother and the American writer TS Eliot.

The warning states: 'We're looking forward to welcoming you to Dinner with Groucho... Content warning: Contains use of haze and prop cigar.' A similar notice is posted on the door of the auditorium.
