Chinamen – Playing dates 15th and 16th February 2019 at the Theatre Supper evenings
Chinamen is a fast-paced, delightfully witty farce by Michael Frayn. We are introduced to a somewhat odd married couple, a dippy husband who has a complete mental block when it comes to people’s names and his wife who is the only one of the two of them that can tell their friends apart. They decide to host a dinner party to which they have accidentally invited the most incompatible guests one could possibly imagine. Dippy husband has invited the husband of a separated couple, whilst his wife has invited the estranged wife of the separated couple along with her new boyfriend. Break neck paced mayhem ensues as the host and hostess try to make sure their three guests never meet.
Sat Love is a comedy that introduces us to “He” and She” Playing dates 15th and 16th February 2019 at the Theatre Supper evenings
He loves his car and his business life, but things aren’t fabulous at home, so whilst on business trips He spices up his life with excursions to extramarital assignations. Whilst driving, his Sat Nav behaves rather strangely. It becomes apparent that not only can it listen and understand his in-car telephone conversations, but its voice (‘She’) appears to have learnt some decidedly unusual words and phrases in addition to usual ‘Make a U-turn when possible‘ and ‘ You have arrived at your destination‘. Remarkably, She can also initiate phone calls and hold conversations! Join us to find out where the Sat Nav takes our errant husband.
Bothered and Bewildered Playing dates 1st – 4th May 2019
As Irene’s family struggle to come to terms with her Alzheimer’s, Irene’s past passion for romantic literature blurs with reality. Irene has an imaginary friend with whom she spends hours discussing how best to write her ‘memory book’ disclosing long kept family secrets that she would never divulge to her daughters Beth and Louise. The play follows Irene, Louise and Beth as the girls lose their mum in spirit but not in body.
Poignant, funny, sad, tender and thought-provoking this tragi-comedy is a must-see.Share this page ~
