Well, last night I went to see the three plays:
- The Reading Group (Fay Weldon)
- Sour Graps and Ashes (Nick Warburton)
- The Last Bread Pudding (Nick Warburton)
All three plays were excellent. The acting by Gill Somerscales, Mary Drennan and Claire Winterbottom was excellent. Jon Price was a little shaky, as was David Smith but St Peters Players is an amateur production company and to learn, rehearse and polish three 50 minute plays when you only started in January is to be commended.
I have written a detailed review for Daily Information (www.dailyinfo.co.uk) and anyway a review of one of the plays (performed by different actors) is here.
The plays, apparently, are comedies. Well, there is some laughter (especially for the third play) but in the main serious points are made. The programme notes say:
'These three one-act plays all see buried truths - sometimes troubling, sometimes inspiring, sometimes simply bizarre - finding their way to the surface...'
For £5 (if you get a concession) you receive almost three hours of entertainment.
Incredible value for money.
Here are some of the actors - in other roles...
