WHO would believe the village fete organised by Gordon Gosforth could descend into such chaos?
Everything from an unexpected storm and a bad-tempered tea urn conspire against him, not to mention a real scandal involving Millie, the tea lady.
This is the farcical one act Play, Gosforth’s Fete by Alan Ayckbourn, one of three to be performed at by our talented local in their next production En Evening With Dramatic Licence.
Albert Stokes, playing Gosforth is at his comic best. The second play, A Chip in the Sugar, is one of the Talking Heads series by Alan Bennett.
A funny but thought-provoking monologue performed by Tony Holden.
The third play, Last Tango in Little Grimley by David Tristram is a hilarious comedy which we hope will give our audiences a glimpse of the problems all amateur theatre companies have, simply trying to put on a play.
But sex sells. To find out how, you’ll have to come along to The Cardenal Belluga Theatre, San Fulgencio. Performances are at 8pm from Thursday May 17, Friday 18 and Saturday 19. www.dramatic-licence.eu 616 089 943.
The company has so far donated more than €30,000 to local Alzheimer’s Societies.
