Tiverton Dramatic Society: One-Act Plays

0

Earlier this year I was involved in a production of two one-act plays with Broadclyst Theatre Group, both of which were entered into the national one-act competition. Now it's the turn of Tiverton Dramatic Society to do the same, with a brace of plays coming up at the beginning of August.

While both of Broadclyst's one-act plays were ostensibly comedy dramas, Tiverton's brace of plays couldn't be more different. The Rats is a mystery thriller by Agatha Christie, in which a man and a woman find themselves locked in a London flat during a party by someone who knows about them having an affair. Last Tango in Little Grimley, by contrast, is a farcical comedy about a failing amateur dramatics group, who resort to the lowest form of smut to stay financially afloat. To get an idea of the latter, click here to see photos from Warkworth Drama Group's production of it back in April 2010.
These two plays will be performing in August at three different venues with three different set-ups:

- Friday August 1st at The Venue, Cullompton (tickets £7.50, bar available - call (01884) 33265)
- Saturday August 2nd at The Walronds, Cullompton (tickets £15 including a meal - call (01884) 35934)
- Saturday August 16th at Village Hall, Calverleigh (tickets £10 including a sausage supper - available from Twyford Photography)

Please go along and support this great company in what promises to be a splendid evening.
