The Wychwood Players are performing two one act plays for their spring production...

 

The first play is: 

A Small Affair

A comedy by Bob Larbey (The Good Life)

 

Set in TV’s Broadcasting House, director Guy’s TV rehearsal is shunted into a small room and he is beset with problems. The cast come to loggerheads but after a ‘calming’ break return to find their space double-booked by would-be contestants in an idiotic panel show. Regular interruptions from members of staff and his cast of eccentric actors add to the comic mayhem of the rehearsal.

 

The second play is:

Another Fine Mess

by Gillian Plowman.


Double act Stephen and Phil are having a last minute rehearsal as Laurel and Hardy in the back room of an old pub. Meg, Stephen’s girlfriend, is there supporting them. The close friendships between the three are strained to the limits by a revelation from Phil which tests their relationships to breaking point.
The problems link with favourite Laurel and Hardy scenes enacted by the characters and these throw light on the charming innocence of Laurel and Hardy and the hard reality of the real lives of Stephen, Phil and Meg.


Performances are from Thursday 2nd May to Saturday 4th May at 7.30 pm.
