Things have been a little quiet on the Broadclyst Theatre Group front of late - and there's a very good reason for that. The cast of regulars and a new face or two have been working hard over the last few months to bring us two one-act plays, which are being presented in Broadclyst this Friday and Saturday (July 28th and 29th).
Aside from presenting stupendous pantomimes on an annual basis, Broadclyst Theatre Group has always had a knack for putting on cracking one act play. I grant you, I'm biased, having been in both Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and the one-acter Two Fat Men, which won the Exmouth One Act Play Festival a few years back. But having been in and around this company for so long, I have no reason to doubt that their latest venture will continue in such a consistently rich vein (though it will be tough to top Dick Whittington & His Magic Cat, which remains one of the best shows I have ever seen).
The two one-act plays being showcased this time around are The Murder's The Thing by local writer Rachel Feeny-Williams and The Molecule Duplicator by John Gregory (which may sound like an episode of The Big Bang Theory, but trust me, it isn't). Details on both productions are a little scarse, though the former has already been seen by audiences in Exton, who were apparently very appreciative of it. Rumour further has it that both are set to be entered in the next Exmouth One-Act Play Festival - so expect excellent timing, a rounded bunch of performance and a confident directorial vision in each case.
The two plays will be performed at the Broadclyst Victory Hall on Friday and Saturday (July 28th and 29th), starting at 7.30pm on both occasions. Tickets are £8, which includes a light supper to be served between the two plays. Tickets can be bought from Broadclyst Post Office or online via TicketSource here. Aimee and I will be there on the Friday night, hope to see you there!
