OUR NEXT PLAY

 

Taking the Waters

A new play by David Fletcher

with kind permission of the Loft Theatre

 

Wednesday 24th April - Saturday 27th April 2024

 

Kineton Village Hall 8pm

 

This play is a deeply human story, told through the eyes of two generations of remarkable women. 

The central theme of the play is water - both as a life-giving force, and also as a source of danger.

 

Act One shows the transition of the sleepy village of Leamington Priors into the thriving town of Leamington Spa. There is a change of mood in Act Two which focuses on the medical and political conflicts surrounding the cholera epidemic, and disputes about what preventative measures should,

or should not, be taken.

 

The play was written during the pandemic, so these modern resonances are somewhat inevitable.

OUR NOVEMBER PLAY

 

It Runs in the Family

A Comedy by Ray Cooney

 

Dr David Mortimore is about to address a neurologists’ convention, which will probably earn him a knighthood. While putting the final touches to his speech an old flame, Jane Tate, arrives and announces that their liaison years ago resulted in a son, Leslie, who is downstairs desperate to meet his dad.

 

Frantic to hide this catastrophic news from his wife and the hospital authorities, David is forced to invent not one but two non-existent husbands for Jane and enlist the help of his colleague Hubert Bonney. 

 

Events are further complicated by the presence of a police sergeant, a wandering senile patient, an assortment of matrons (real or otherwise), a syringe full of tranquilizer and the costumes for the hospital pantomime!

 

 

This amateur production of "It Runs in the family by Ray Cooney" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd.
on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk
