Following a really successful event last year, rehearsals are now underway for our mini festival of four short plays which will be performed in the garden of our local pub, The New Inn, on Sunday 31 July. Admission is free, but we are asking for a donation to cover costs.
Last year, more than 70 people attended and had a jolly good laugh in glorious sunshine and we are hoping for more of the same this year.
We have a small and dedicated company as follows (in alphabetical order)
Three of the plays are taken from Michael Green’s ‘Four Plays for Coarse Actors’ - parodies of four dramatic styles, in the performance of which everything which can go wrong in a production does so. (If you enjoyed The Play that Goes Wrong, you will enjoy these) Adrian Wells is directing three very funny pieces, each about 15 minutes long.
Streuth - a crime story that gets itself into such confusion that it is doomed, apparently, to perpetual motion: but the Coarse Actors struggle gamefully on throughout.
A Collier’s Tuesday Tea - combines the kitchen'sink with the coal-mine, and with an irreverent glance at D.H. Lawrence.
If Fornicazione (The Adulterer) an opera. Unfortunately, only one musician has managed to turn up but the cast are detemined to carry on.
Pete Bailey is directing a dark comedy, Armed Robbery for Dummies which features three new members to our company. Welcome to Lynden Players, Chloe, Dan and Rebecca.
