A mother and her daughter; a father and his son find themselves on neighbouring hotel terraces in Marrakesh. Add in a local trader with something very potent up his sleeve, all kinds of mayhem ensue! A lively comedy-farce that takes a wry look at the madness of infatuation and what remains when passions have run their course.
For our Winter 2015 production, we have chosen two short plays that will see children from the local community joining us, as well as a few of our newest members. The play opens on Thursday 19th February and runs until Saturday 21st February.
ACT I is a play called CINDERELLA: THE UNTOLD STORY by John O’Hara – the pantomime-ish fairytale wedding of the fake Cinderella and Prince Charming comes to a screeching halt when O’Reilly, a fairy tale fixer, breaks it up to reveal the true, untold story.
ACT II is a play called THE FLESH GAME by Rae Shirley – a lively comedy that takes a light-hearted look at slimming. Set in a regimented Health Spa, presided over by the humourless and power-loving Nurse Burton, its guests respond to its structure like naughty schoolchildren. They all have their different reasons for being there and there is plenty of fun and games as the different ways of cheating are sought.
People wishing to book seats can do so by any of the following methods:
