Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend the evening in the company of a typically hapless amateur dramatic society?
Well wonder no more!
“A Collier’s Tuesday Tea” and “Streuth”, brilliantly written by Michael Green, are carefully constructed parodies ensuring that anything which could conceivably go wrong in a production does so.
“A Collier’s Tuesday Tea” combines the kitchen sink with the coal mine, together with an irreverent glance towards D. H. Lawrence. It is 1912 when you join the ’epplethwaite family as they gather for ‘igh tea. The weather is awful and yes - you guessed it - there’s trouble at t’pit! Not to mention trouble with the props, scenery - and accents.
“Streuth” is a crime drama which even Agatha Christie would never have dared to write. Set in the drawing room of D’Arcy Manor the mystery unravels - unfortunately so do the cast - and most of the scenery! There is such confusion that this play might just go on… …and on… …and on…
Sandwiched in between these two wonderfully funny plays is David Tristram’s “Last Panto In Little Grimley”. This slightly longer play follows the misfortunes of Little Grimley’s Am Dram Society - down to its last four members - as it plans its next production. Things are getting desperate as they meet to revive the group’s ailing support. Needless to say things are far from harmonious, and chaos - and laughter - ensue! Sound like any group you know?
If you loved “The Play That Goes Wrong” you’ll love these plays - 3 for the price of 1!
