All and sundry are cordially invited to a rehearsed reading of JM Barrie’s classic one act play “The Old Lady Shows her Medals”.
Featuring Matt Anderson, Beth Beamish, Geraldine Broderick, Lynn Clark, Colin Francis, Elaine Jones and Anne Preddy, Directed by Tracey Carter.
A chance to hear this classic play…Mrs Dowey meets regularly with her fellow charwomen to discuss the toils of London in 1916. The topic of lively debate are the battles and heroics of each of their sons and whose has higher rank. The view of her guests is that no woman can understand the suffering of the war unless she has a husband, brother or son actively fighting in it. Mrs Dowey actively joins in these discussions because she too, says has a son in the war - in the Black Watch, no less. Kenneth Dowey arrives back in London on leave and meeting Mrs Doweys friends, impresses them all. It is a surprise in more ways than one.
4 pm Sunday December 1, Boyd Road Theatre. All welcome. Entry by gold coin donation.
