A reading of the comedy ‘FONDLY REMEMBERED’ by Gareth Armstrong will be held at Ty Price Community Hall on Sunday 27th January at 7.30pm.
Is a man’s memorial service the right time to tell the truth? Reunited for the occasion, a group of friends gather to celebrate a life. But who are they remembering? A creative genius, a former lover, a bitter rival – or the man who deceived them all?
This wickedly funny new play has a cast of 5 (3 males, 2 females) and is to be our Summer production directed by Jim Newcomb.
Our Spring production ‘WEEKEND BREAKS’ has now been cast and rehearsals are underway for this comedy written by John Godber (April In Paris, Going Dutch)
Martin Dawson is an English academic and part time aspiring scriptwriter, who is experiencing the fallout of an extra-marital affair. To help him through it, he rents a cottage in the Lake District to concentrate on writing his current filmscript and decides to invite his parents, Joan and Len, to visit him for a relaxing weekend break.. However, the weekend turns out to be one remembered with confrontations, twists and revelations that perhaps should have remained in the family vault.
Written in 1997, this heartfelt and poignant comedy is as autobiographical as most of Godber’s best works. Noted as a favourite, it is full of bittersweet humour and paints a picture of family life that will strike a chord in many people.
The production will be performed from 14th - 16th March and is being directed by Geoff Manning. The three roles will be played by Thom Wade, Eileen Summers and Phil Davies.
